Hellenic Republic’s Cypriot grain salad

I can’t tell you how many times I have made this delicious salad! I absolutely love it and will never ever tire of eating it. Seems that many Australian’s agree with me because since Good Food published this recipe back in 2013 it's received one million clicks online. WOW!



1 bunch coriander, chopped
1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1 cup freekah (or cracked wheat or quinoa)
1/2 cup Puy lentils
2 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp toasted slivered almonds
2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
2 tbsp baby capers
1/2 cup currants
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp extra virgin olive
Sea salt to taste
1 pomegranate, deseeded, to serve



1 cup thick Greek yoghurt
1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted and ground
1 tbsp honey



Blanch freekah and lentils separately in boiling water until both just cooked.
Drain well and allow to cool.
Mix the yoghurt, ground cumin and honey until combined.
In a medium bowl, place the coriander, parsley, red onion, freekah, lentils, toasted nuts, capers, currants, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix well and season to taste.
Place into serving dish and top with cumin yoghurt and pomegranate seeds.
