This Grain Salads category is comprised of salads that are made from a grain, which can be defined as a small, hard seed, especially the seed of a food plant.
Grains are classified as True Cereal Grains and Pseudo-Cereal Grains.
Cereal Grains are members of the grass family and contain substantial amounts of starch which is a carbohydrate providing dietary energy.
Pseudo Cereal Grains are not true grains but in fact, are seeds from a variety of broadleaf plant families which is why they are referred to as "pseudo". This makes them suitable for people following a paleo diet.
