Introducing a delicious, fresh and tasty Tuscan spelt salad. This is a very simple dish, healthy, fresh and exceptionally full-flavoured, made with spelt, a cereal with rich nutritional properties which when combined with a good raw oil is truly amazing! In order to develop the flavour even more we recommend keeping it in the fridge for a few hours before serving. The salad is very versatile and adapts to most situations, as a main dish for a fresh summer dinner, or as part of a healthy and balanced diet, or if you have some vegetarian guests for lunch - in all these different circumstances it will be a great success! It’s easy to make: just follow each step described and illustrated in the photo gallery, and in no time you'll have a fabulous Tuscan spelt salad.
Boil a small pot of salted water and once boiling add the spelt and cook for 25 minutes (or as directed on the package). While it is cooking, prepare the sauce: soak the dried tomatoes and then after 10 minutes, finely dice them and the fresh tomatoes, celery and onion. Coarsely chop the capers and olives. While you wait for the spelt to finish cooking, add everything to a bowl and season with the sugar, salt and oil. Drain the spelt, let it cool for 15 minutes and mix well with the vegetables. Serve the Tuscan spelt salad with grated pecorino romano. The Tuscan spelt salad is ready!
