Makes 3 cups
2 cups Speerville Flour Mill Organic Oat Groats
½ tsp salt
½ red pepper, small dice
½ cucumber, small dice
1 tomato, small dice
¼ red onion, small dice
½ cup feta, crumbled
¼ cup black olive, pitted and diced
½ cup olive oil
¼ balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp liquid honey
1 tsp minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Place oat groats in a medium saucepan. Cover with cold water about two inches above oats. Add salt.
Place saucepan on high heat and bring to a boil. Once water is boiling, turn down heat to medium.
Allow oats to cook for 45 minutes or just until tender. They should still have a slight bite.
Cool oats under cold running water. Once chilled, place in a medium bowl. Add other ingredients and mix well.
Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. The salad tastes best after sitting overnight.
