If I’m going to eat a salad for dinner, it’s gotta be robust enough to really fill me up, AND I especially love a salad that keeps well, and makes a delicious lunch the following day. This fresh and crunchy Freekah salad totally hits the mark!
I love the nuttiness of Freekah, however it’s not gluten free – for a gluten free option, try substituting quinoa, but be aware you may need to reduce the amount of dressing you add, as Freekah soaks up quite a lot of the dressing.
The colour and crunch of radishes and snow peas make this dish so vibrant, but really any crunchy raw veg can be added to this salad. Try fennel, sugar snap peas, even blanched frozen peas would be a great addition!
This makes a great side dish for fish, chicken or BBQ’d meat, and keeps well for about 3 days in the fridge.
