Whole grain salads make me feel like a champion! Sometimes I crave a big bowl of whole wheat pasta marinara, but sometimes I just want the whole wheat grain itself. There’s something about it…the springy texture of whole grain Kamut, the sweetness of fresh fruit and carrots, and the lovely tang of a home made vinaigrette. I hope this dish makes you feel as wonderful as I do!
3 Cups cooked whole grain Kamut (khorasan wheat)
2 Pears (Asian or other variety), cored and chopped
1 Cup shredded carrots
1/4 Cup fresh Turkish apricots, chopped
3 Spring onions, thinly sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon brown rice syrup
Place the cooked and cooled Kamut in a large bowl and add the pears, shredded carrot, apricots, and spring onions. Prepare the dressing by mixing the lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and brown rice syrup well in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the grain salad and mix with salad hands. Serve chilled.
