Salad:
1 cup KAMUT® wheat berries
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 large orange: peeled, remove pith and cut into 1/2" segments
1 1/2 cup coarsely chopped, toasted walnuts
1 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Dressing:
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey

 

Soak the KAMUT® wheat berries overnight in 3 cups of water. Drain, put into a saucepan and cover with water (at least 2" higher than the KAMUT® wheat berries). Bring water to a boil, reduce to a low heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. The KAMUT® wheat berries should be tender but still slightly chewy. Drain and cool.

Assemble and toss together in a serving bowl the KAMUT® wheat berries, golden raisins, orange segments and shallots. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand for 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile, put all the dressing ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake until well blended. Drizzle over salad and gently toss, then sprinkle with the walnuts, blue cheese and parsley.
