KAMUT®, Orange, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad

I’m always looking for new ideas for using KAMUT® wheat berries. Here’s a salad I can’t wait to try. I will use sweet onions and parsley from my garden as well as the hi-oleic safflower oil we make on the farm for the dressing.

A colorful and zesty salad, bursting with flavor and a perfect accompaniment to grilled meats and fish.

 

Makes 4-6 servings

Ingredients

1cup – KAMUT® berries

¼cup – golden raisins

1 large – orange, peeled, remove pith and cut into ½” segments

2 small – fresh red chilies finely chopped

1 – sweet onion finely chopped

1½cup – coarsely chopped, toasted walnuts

1½cup – crumbled blue cheese

3Tbs – finely chopped fresh parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Dressing

¼cup – fresh squeezed orange juice

1tsp – orange zest

1Tbs – fresh squeezed lemon juice

¼cup – hi-oleic safflower oil

2Tbs – honey

 

  • Soak the KAMUT® berries overnight in 3 cups of water, drain, put into a saucepan and cover with water (at least 2” higher than the KAMUT®) bring to a boil, reduce to a low heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. The KAMUT® should be tender but still slightly chewy.
  • Drain and cool.
  • Assemble and toss together in a serving bowl the KAMUT® berries, golden raisins, orange segments and sweet onion. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, put all the dressing ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake until well blended.
  • Drizzle over salad and gently toss, then sprinkle with the walnuts, blue cheese and parsley.
