Perhaps you've heard of the Ancient Grain 'Freekah Greenwheat', but you are not sure what to do with it? Try this super healthy, delicious salad by itself or serve on leafy greens!
2 cups cracked freekeh
5 cups water
1 cup sliced almonds
2/3 cup chopped dried apricots
½ cup chopped chives
For the dressing: ¼ cup good quality apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp grade B maple syrup
1 Tbsp powdered ginger
½ cup grape seed oil
salt to taste
Combine freekeh and 5 cups of water in a pot; bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 25-30 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached.
Allow freekeh to cool completely; then add other ingredients and gently stir in dressing to coat. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to absorb flavors before serving. Serve with greens! It is also delicious with raisins or cranberries!
