Einkorn Berry Salad

February 28, 2017

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.
