This hearty ancient grain and raw kale salad is a satisfying and delicious twist on the more traditional green salad. Packed with favor and nutrients, the creamy combination of feta and chewy KAMUT® wheat berries blend perfectly with the crunchy kale. A tangy touch of lemon vinaigrette rounds out the flavors. Make a big batch because it’s so good and it will hold up well for a few days.
Serves 4 – 6:
1cup cooked KAMUT® wheat berries
3 cups kale, washed, remove stalks and tear bite size pieces
¼ cup red onion, finely diced
¼ cup fresh mint leaves thinly sliced
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
To prepare the KAMUT® wheat berries, soak for 8-16 hours in water. Drain and rinse, put in a saucepan and cover with an extra 2” of water. Add a little salt, bring to the boil and simmer for half an hour until the berries are chewy but not too soft. Drain and allow to cool.
Serves 4 – 6:
2Tbs fresh lemon juice
6Tbs olive oil
2Tbs rice wine vinegar
1/2tsp ground black pepper
Put all the ingredients into a screw top jar and shake well
To assemble the salad, in a large serving bowl, add the kale, red onion, mint leaves and KAMUT® berries. Toss with the lemon vinaigrette (begin with half the dressing and add more depending how much dressing you like) salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the feta cheese and it’s ready to serve.
