Gardein’s Seven Grain Tenders are the star of the show here. Cooked up in the air fryer they make for a perfect topping for any salad. Here we’re using a simple store bought Asian salad. There tenders cooked to a crisp finish and chopped over the salad – an easy 10 minute weeknight dinner for the Summer.
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC – Utah’s biggest and oldest online food magazine; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. I started Shop Smart to catalogue my adventures in the grocery store and kitchen.
