Chicken, Sweet Onion & Kale Salad with Kamut

chicken kale salad

This Chicken and Kale Salad was my lunch yesterday.  Sweet onions and Kamut (an ancient strain of wheat,  Yes, I have a preference in wheat berries, and this is it), round out the flavor and texture of the plate, while providing healthy complex carbohydrates.  I already had Kamut precooked in my fridge, so this was a quick hot salad to toss together.  I guess you could call it a stir fry it you prefer, but I don’t prefer ;)

I noshed this plate right down, the tangy dressing was light enough not to over power the primary ingredients, but present enough to add a delightful freshness to the dish. Well, that’s my not-so-humble opinion…lol.

The recipe below is for a single serving, just double or multiply as needed.  It was a filling serving, so err toward a little less, if in doubt.

    I’ve tried Kale a few times, not a huge fan but love the rest of the salad. (I notice you took down Flare any reason?)

    Like a few of the commenters I’ve never heard of kamut before – I really wouldn’t even know where to look for “wheat berries” in a store either – can you tell I’m a processed food type of gal? LOL. That looks wonderful though.
