Happy Belly Deli's Alpha Omega Salad

Here is a grain, vegetable, seed and cranberry salad called The Alpha Omega that I just love. I picked it up at the Happy Belly Deli at the Roanoke Natural Foods Cooperative. I was quite pleased to get this recipe because I've bought this many times and wondered what all was in it. I thought I had it all figured out but I was missing a few things. Until now. Mystery solved!

The recipe serves quite a few (15-20), so it is good to take to a large gathering or you can half the recipe.

Ingredients:
5 cups - Raw Kamut
1 lb - Carrots, shredded
1 lb - red onion, diced
1 lb - Red Pepper, diced
1 lb - Green Pepper, diced
1/2 cup - Parsley, chopped
1/2 cup - Green Onion, sliced
1 cup - Peas
2 cups - Cranberries
2 cups - sunflower seeds

Dressing:
1/3 cup - Red Wine Vinegar
1/3 cup - Lemon Juice
1/2 cup - Canola Oil
1/2 cup - Olive Oil
1/2 cup - Flax Seed Oil
2 Tbsp. - Minced Garlic

Directions:
Cook Kamut in salted boiling water until soft (approximately 45 minutes). Drain and rinse in cold water. Allow grains to cool. Place all ingredients other than the dressing ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Place all dressing ingredients in blender and puree. Pour dressing over dry ingredients and mix to combine.
