Recipe Notes

For a non-vegetarian version add 1/2 cup cooked diced bacon and/or 100 g crumbled feta.  Diced avocado also works well in this salad although it does affect how well the salad stores.

Feel free to change it up and add 1/3 cup red onion (diced) and/or a sprinkling of pumpkin or sunflower seeds.

Keep some cooked groats in the fridge to add to your salads during the summer months to make salad prep super quick and easy.  They store for a 5-7 days in a sealed container.
