Another Tasty Recipe From
Spelt Caprese Salad
Posted On May 21, 2019
In the summer there's nothing better than a delicious caprese salad with those juicy tomatoes fresh out of your garden. It's such a perfect combination, the ripe tomatoes with lots of mozarella and basil, then topped with a delicious olive oil.
In fact, the only problem (if you can really call it a problem) with caprese salad is that it's never quite enough to make a meal on it's own. When you add spelt berries to the mix - the result is a delicious combination that I have for lunch all summer long, especially once those cherry tomatoes start popping! It's great for lunch or dinner, ideal to bring to a picnic or BBQ, and fills you up perfectly.
This grain salad comes together in seconds with precooked spelt berries and those tiny little mozzarella balls you can find in the deli section at your favorite grocer. Quick and tasty, you'll be adding spelt berries to your caprese salad all summer long!
