Delectable whole grain summer salads -- and they're good for you too

Nothing against rice and beans, but there's a whole world of grainy goodness beyond, a culinary realm that's criminally ignored in most kitchens (including our's). Barley, bulgur, quinoa, millet — whole grains are readily available, easy to cook, and make for scrumptious summer salads.
