Chilled Cracked Freekeh Salad

Chilled Cracked Freekeh Salad

I seriously can’t believe it’s July!

Just in case you need a quick and festive side dish for the 4th check this out! CHILLED CRACKED FREEKEH SALAD.

Every heard of Freekeh?? It’s a nutty, high-fiber whole grain found in Middle Eastern cuisine. It’s young green wheat that has been roasted and cracked and I personally love the texture. It has a bit more bite than quinoa.

Anything you use brown rice or quinoa with, you can totally use Freekeh. Switch it up!
