Ancient Grain and Pomegranate Salad

Ancient Grain and Pomegranate Salad


Rather than a regular leafy salad which can droop or go soggy waiting in your container, this Ancient Grain and Pomegranate Salad can last until lunchtime and is just as delicious then as when it is first made.

Make up a big batch of this over the weekend and use it for lunches throughout the week. And with freekah, lentil and pomegranate in the mix, it’s a nutritional powerhouse that will keep you going for the rest of the day.
