Freekeh Salad by Farah's Kitchen
Start by rinsing the freekeh very well. Drain and dump into a saucepan that has been heated with ½ tbsp. of olive oil. Sautee for 2 mins.
Add the 1 cup of boiling water, cover, and leave to simmer over low heat.
It takes 15 to 20 minutes for the freekeh to cook.
Once it is done, transfer onto a plate and let it cool completely.
Peel the cucumbers and slice them twice lengthwise. You will get 4 strips. Chop them down so that they are almost the size of pomegranate seeds. (Do not slice them thin)
Apply the same thing to the radishes.
In the serving bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together- lemon, salt, olive oil, and molasses. Add the freekeh and mix so it absorbs the flavors.
After that add the chopped cucumbers, radishes, pomegranate seeds, and cilantro. Toss lightly to coat.
Garnish with cilantro and serve.
