Addictively crunchy and bursting with bright flavors, this einkorn salad makes for a stunning and healthy side dish.



For the Salad:

  • ½ cup einkorn berries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 small head radicchio, chopped finely
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • ½ cup toasted walnuts
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, diced
  • 5 tablespoons raw honey
  • Additional salt and pepper to taste

For the Dressing:

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (about 1 ½ lemons)
  • ¼ cup minced parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place einkorn and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until water has been absorbed and einkorn is chewy.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients and set aside.
  3. Transfer cooked einkorn to a large bowl and add radicchio and shallots. Pour prepared dressing on top and toss well to coat.
  4. Add apples, walnuts, and honey. Toss well to combine. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately.
