Elga’s Spring Spa Salad



How to Make It:
Yield: 4 Servings

  1.  To prepare freekeh. you’ll want a little bit more than a two-to-one ratio of liquid to freekeh.  Two and a half cups of water or vegetable broth for every cup of freekeh. Simmer freekeh, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes. When the liquid is absorbed and the grains are soft, they’re ready to be used. Refrigerate until cool.
  2. Prepare all components except for the avocado.
  3. Toss arugula and spring mix in a bowl with half of the vinaigrette. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place on 2 plates. Artistically arrange components in separate areas on top of lettuce.
  5. Slice avocado and place in the center on top of the salad. Sprinkle walnuts and drizzle remaining vinaigrette.
  6. Serve immediately.

This salad can be served as a complete meal for lunch or dinner or as a side. Substitute freekeh with cooked brown rice or any other healthy grain!
