Spelt Salad

Andrea made a Spelt Salad to complement her Kidney Bean Casserole. It is another German dish. Andrea brought this Spelt Salad to the community kitchen potluck before.

Spelt is in the family of wheat. It has a moderate amount of gluten, thus suitable for baking. Spelt which is made into bread, biscuits, crackers and pasta can be found in health food stores.


The Spelt Salad can be a meal by itself. It has lots of vegetables, grains and eggs in it. Someone commented that this salad makes your jaw works out quite a bit as the spelt is quite crunchy and chewy.
