Spelt Salad

This is a colorful and satisfying grain salad brought to us by MILFy Sarah Loring of Connecticut. Her food has a certain graceful quality. This is wonderful and refreshing served on fresh lettuce leaves and goes with just about everything.

  • 4 cups spring water
  • Sea salt

Instructions

  1. Place the spelt in a saucepan with the water and a pinch of sea salt. Bring to a boil, reduce
  2. the heat to low, cover, and cook for 1 hour. Pour into a colander, draining any remaining liquid,
  3. and set aside to cool.
