Turkish Grains with Sour Cherries & Feta Salad

This quick and easy salad has a wonderful balance of textures and flavours. It’s great for a quick lunch or side dish and also perfect for packing up for a work lunch or picnic (drizzle on the dressing just before serving). Sour cherries are available from major supermarkets or delis and they have a lovely tang which works perfectly with the Turkish spices, but if you can’t find any try cranberries, raisins or barberries.

Method

Cook the grains according to the packet instructions. Empty into a bowl and fluff with a fork to separate the grains. Add the red onion, cherries, walnuts and chopped herbs.

Whisk together the oil and lemon juice and season with a little salt & pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the grains and scatter with the feta.
