Betty Crocker Suddenly Grains Salads: The Perfect Side Dish! #SuddenlyGrainSalad

Sometimes coming up with dinner plans that everyone in my household will eat is harder than trying to scale Mt. Everest. Just when I think my three kids like something, their taste buds change and they snub my meals. There is nothing worse than trying so hard to prepare a grand meal only for your 4 year old to say this is gross..how rude!
Rather than rip my hair out, I have started sampling my options, and taking the easier route. As a Platefull Co-Op member, I had first dibs on trying out the *New* Betty Crocker Suddenly Grains Salads. My kids do enjoy their Classic Suddenly Salad product, so I was hoping that these delicious looking grain salads would fit their taste.
Betty Crocker Suddenly Grains Salads are much different than their pasta counterparts. They are made with grains like quinoa, brown, wild, and even red rice. My kids like rice so I figured they’d really enjoy these new, and convenient side dish options. The first variety I decided to prepare was the Suddenly Grains Salad: Ancient Harvest.
My favorite part about preparing this product was that it was a no mess side! You conveniently boil the rice pouch on your stove top for around 15 minutes (turning once). When it is done, you rinse it under cool water, and then combine the spice pack, and mix ins with 1 tablespoon of oil, and 1 tablespoon of water.
The salad is then served cold with your choice of meals. It is also so hearty that you could eat it alone! We had ours with a cold cut sandwich, and some chips. It felt like it was a fitting meal considering it was really warm out. I LOVED the taste of this product, and so did my husband. My picky kids only ate the cranberries and almonds. However, at this point I would have been surprised if they did eat it all.
