Einkorn Salad with Spring Greens and Herbs Recipe

Einkorn Salad with Spring Greens and Herbs

Serves 4-6

We love the nutty chewiness that cooked einkorn, an ancient grain which is a type of farro, adds to this salad of fresh spring greens and herbs. We recommend Bluebird Grain Farms einkorn, a local product grown in Winthrop, Washington.


  • Salad Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup dry einkorn or farro, cook according to package directions
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 small to medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 English cucumber, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
  • Lemon-Olive Oil Dressing Ingredients:
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup Metropolitan Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. In a medium bowl, combine cooked, cooled einkorn with remaining salad ingredients.
  2. For dressing, in a small bowl, whisk lemon juice with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste. Whisk in olive oil.
  3. Just before serving, add dressing to salad and toss. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.
  4. Cook's Tip:
  5. Einkorn or farro takes 30 to 60 minutes to cook. You can shorten the cooking time by soaking it for an hour first. Drain and cook as directed for approximately half the time, until the grains are soft and chewy.
