Let It Grain
A Kamut-berry salad from a whole-grain guru
Last spring, we started cooking our way through Maria Speck's award-winning Ancient Grains for Modern Meals. And while we loved all her tasty, easy-to-master offerings, our only complaint was that we wanted more. Lucky for us, Speck willingly sent us a bonus recipe. Rich, buttery Kamut berries (an ancient relative of modern durum wheat) lend their distinct chew to this bright, late-winter salad, which combines tender leeks, crunchy walnuts and plump golden raisins with zesty oranges and aromatic blue cheese. It makes an excellent lunch, side dish or dinner salad and is an all-around versatile recipe that should keep us satisfied--for a while.
