KAMUT® Wheat Tabbouleh Salad

by Sue Taggart

Antioxidant rich KAMUT® wheat berries can make for a tasty tabbouleh salad. Paired with fresh parsley and mint, it’s a delightfully filling side dish that pairs well with chicken and fish, or as part of a Mediterranean platter.

Serves 4-6 as a side dish:

1 c Kamut Wheat Berries

4 c water

2 c fresh chopped flat leaf parsley

1/2 c fresh chopped mint

12 cherry tomatoes diced

1/2 cucumber, peeled, deseeded and chopped into 1/4″ pieces

2 slices of red onion diced

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

3/4 tbsp sea salt

1/4 tbsp fresh black pepper

3 oz crumbled Olympus Dairy feta cheese for serving (optional)

To assemble, toss all the ingredients together in a serving bowl until mixed well, top with feta cheese—this adds a lovely creamy texture to the dish and marries well with the nutty, chewy KAMUT® berries and the crunchy herbs and cucumber.Bring the water and KAMUT® berries to the boil in a saucepan, simmer over a low heat for 2 hours when most of the water will be absorbed. The berries will plump up and should be of a chewy texture. Drain, rinse and allow to cool.
