Kamut, also known as Khorasan wheat, is an ancient grain that has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its nutty flavor and high nutritional value. This recipe for Kamut Salad with Creamy Chipotle Dressing is a delicious and healthy way to incorporate this superfood into your diet. Kamut is high in protein and fiber, and combined with fresh vegetables and a spicy, tangy dressing, this salad is a perfect lunch or light dinner option. The creamy chipotle dressing is made with Greek yogurt, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and lime juice, and can be adjusted to your desired level of spiciness. This salad is also gluten-free and can be customized with your favorite toppings.

Ingredients:

For the salad:

  • 1 cup kamut, rinsed and drained

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  3. Drain any excess water and let the kamut cool.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the cooled kamut, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, and feta cheese.
