A veggie-packed grain salad is perfect for traveling: It’s filling, healthy, and actually tastes better at room temperature. We love the added brightness of preserved lemon rind, but don’t stress if you can’t find it—this salad is delicious without. Add some grilled chicken or salmon for extra protein.
