Early Fall Grain Salad

Ingredients:
1 C Rancho Gordo Spelt Berries, cooked until tender
2-3 radishes, thinly sliced
Fresh herbs, chopped (parsley, chives and dill all work well)
1 small cucumber or three small lemon cucumbers, thinly sliced
1/4 cup good-quality feta cheese, crumbled
1 Tablespoon hemp seeds
1/2 Tablespoon black sesame seeds
1/4 cup walnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
salt + pepper to taste

Dressing:
1/4 C olive oil
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 small shallot, finely chopped
2 tsp. maple syrup
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

Add all ingredients to a mason jar, shake vigorously. Pour over all salad ingredients — you may not need all of the dressing so eyeball it. Enjoy with Herb Lamb Vineyard’s HL Cabernet Sauvignon.
