I've been discovering and playing with new grains and flours lately. Today it was my turn to discover kamut, an ancient type of wheat, rich in selenium, vitamins E, A and C. Versatile, can be used in preparation of "risotto" type of dishes, cold salads, added to soups, and flour can be used for bread, cakes, cookies etc. Feel free to change and/or add vegetables in this salad to suit you or the season of the year.
