Daisy At Home: Thanksgiving Salad

We love this recipe from Sarah of Daisy At Home! What a fun alternative to the rice pilafs and other grain dishes that we see every year! The spelt berries have a lovely chewy texture and the cranberries keep this dish perfectly seasonal. If you don’t have spelt berries handy, wheat berries or even brown rice will work in a pinch. Of her blog, Sarah writes, “Daisy At Home is a blog about life and cooking in Southern California. I love to use fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients while experimenting in my kitchen.”
