Salads don’t have to be boring and bland-in fact, by using some varied textures and exotic flavors, a warm salad may just become your favorite lunch or dinner side dish! This particular salad makes use of Southeast Asian flavors-mint, cilantro, fried onions, peanuts, and spicy pickled vegetables all on a bed of hearty real whole grain.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole spelt grain, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups fried crispy onions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup pickled vegetables, diced
  • 1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Add spelt and simmer for about 45 to 50 minutes or until cooked. Drain.
  2. Stir in mint, cilantro, onions, salt, and pepper into warm spelt.  Top with pickled vegetables and peanuts before serving.  Enjoy!
