Gluten Free Prairie Tropical Groat Salad

“Boy, I sure could go for some delicious groats, but it’s summertime and I’d really like something cool and refreshing to make as a side dish.” That’s what we thought too, so we decided to make up this warm weather side dish that will knock your socks off (which is good since it’s warm anyway). This tropical salad has mango, coconut, pineapple, and currants! It’s like the Gluten-Free Prairie is saying, “Aloha Y’all!”

Here’s the video version of the recipe for Tropical Salad with Oat Groats:
