Spelt Salad with White Beans and Artichokes

Spelt (also called farro) is a high-protein grain with a mellow nutty flavor, and it provides an alternative to bulgur for those who have wheat allergies. (Bulgur is a good substitute if you do not have spelt for this dish.) It's nice chilled or at room temperature. Include a cluster of red grapes and crusty Italian bread in your bag. Spelt Salad with White Beans and Artichokes is a delicious dish that you will make again and again.
