Enjoy the lively colours of late summer with this tasty salad full of healthy nutrients combining the sweet nutty little pearled spelt (grains of spelt with the outer husk removed), with zucchini, cranberries, then tossed with a tangy sundried tomato vinaigrette. If you can’t find polished spelt, use pearled barley instead.
