   sections.  Set aside about 8 sections for garnish and coarsely chop
   remainder. Combine grains, orange zest, chopped oranges, parsley, carrots,
   celery and raisins in large bowl. For dressing, combine oils, vinegar,
   lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste in food processor or jar. Pulse
   briefly or shake well to blend.  Pour dressing over grain mixture and toss
   until thoroughly blended.  Taste and add more salt or lemon juice, if
   needed, to perk up flavors. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves and garnish
   with reserved orange sections.
