This salad is delicious served chilled or at room temperature. Make it a day ahead to let the flavors blend and bloom. It can be part of a light lunch with some crusty bread and fresh fruit or can work as a side dish for a simple meat or poultry entrée.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare dressing, combine the first 9 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Step 2

To prepare salad, combine spelt, 1 1/2 cups broth, and 1 cup water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes.

Step 3

While the spelt is cooking, bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan, and add green beans and sliced carrots. Cook until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into cold water. Drain again. Combine spelt, green beans, carrots, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing, and toss well to coat. Let stand for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
