Happy Belly Deli's Alpha Omega Salad

Mar 26, 2013

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.

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

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

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.
