Spelt and Kamut Salad

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is a very healthy grain salad. I have tried to duplicate the one I buy at the Overwaite deli. It is close but not completely there. Still this is very tasty. You do not want large servings ( apprx 1/2 cup serving) - it is very filling and intended to be served as a side dish. I like to have tomatoes and lettuce along with it or any other green salad.

First time using Kamut - thought it was tasty - I doubled the dressing ingredients - used raisins instead of cranberries and added toasted slivered almonds. Would make again.
