This is one of my favorite salads! I first ate it in Italy on a Get-A-Way with 7 of my friends. We all loved it! I just made a few slight adjustments. Jovial Foods is my favorite source for einkorn berries, I think they're a higher quality ancient wheat berry, than einkorn from other growers that I've tried. I also love Jovial's olive oil. A little tip: make your order around Christmas time to have freshly harvested olive oil shipped right to your door. We don't eat a lot of pasta, but when we do, we enjoy Jovial's brown rice pasta. Their chickpeas and tomatoes are great quality items as well. Can you tell I like Jovial Foods? They're not paying me to say this and we're not affiliated in any way, I just want to pass the word along about a great company. Thank you Jovial for allowing me to share your wonderful recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Einkorn Berry Salad
1 1/2 cups dry einkorn berries
4 tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, diced
2-3 green onions, sliced
3 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
3 oz. organic, feta cheese crumbles
6 Tbsp. organic, extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. organic, raw apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1. Follow these instructions for cooking Einkorn Berries. You'll need to start a day in advance, for a soaked Einkorn version. Otherwise, click on this link for the original recipe from Jovial.
2. In a large bowl, combine cooked einkorn berries, tomatoes, cucumber, onions, parsley and feta cheese.
3. Mix olive oil, vinegar and salt together.
4. Pour dressing over salad, mix and enjoy.
I think this salad has the best flavor after sitting for an hour, or two. It does store fine in the fridge, but I prefer it fresh.
