With these beautiful days I don’t want to spend hours in my kitchen and I especially want to have fresh dishes to taste. Here is a new salad without any difficulty, very pleasant to savour: tomatoes, mozzarella, fresh herbs and especially caramelized red onions for my little sweet touch that I like so much. Color, freshness, flavor, summer is here! 

Wheat salad recipe for 6 people:

  • 200g pre-cooked whole wheat
  • 200g of lead paste 
  • 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (white or brown)
  • 250g of small mozzarelles
  • 500g of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small bunch of flat parsley
  • 1 small bunch of basil 
  • 1/2 clove of garlic
  • 60g of toasted pine nuts (optional)
  • salt pepper

Here are the lead doughs and the pre-cooked wheat. You can use ebly or a similar brand. For the lead pasta, I took the 111. You can of course replace with other small pasta. 

Cook lead pasta and wheat in boiling salted water according to package instructions. Rinse in cold water to cool, drain well and place in a bowl and mix.

Add the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey and half a clove of garlic.

Slice the red onions.

Fry them in a little olive oil in a hot pan (here my skeppshult that I love!).

Add salt, pepper and sugar. to caramelize them. 
When the onions take a nice color, let them cool separately.
For the mozzarella, take the smallest ones possible and cut them into pieces. 

Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.

Chop the washed flat-leaf parsley.

Do the same for the basil.

Put everything in the salad and mix carefully. Add salt and pepper 

Pour in the caramelized red onions.

Mix one last time.

You can of course add some toasted pine nuts!
Place the salad in a cool place for at least 3 hours before enjoying it in the sun. Don’t hesitate to serve it on a bed of arugula!
