  • To prepare the 3 Grains summer salad start by boiling the cereals: put in a large pot the rice-spelt-barley mixture, add abundant salt water and let them cook following the directions on the packaging (they usually need about 15-18 minutes of cooking).
  • Once cooked, they will have absorbed some of the water so drain them and pour them under cold running water to block the cooking.
  • Transfer them to a large bowl and keep them aside.
  • Prepare the cherry tomatoes: wash them under running water and cut them in small pieces.
  • Remove the preserving water of mozzarella and cut it into small dices.
  • At this point, take the bowl with the cereals and add the Genovese Pesto sauce, the cherry tomatoes, the mozzarella dices and some leaves of rocket.
  • Sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and some salt.
  • Mix with a spoon so as to amalgamate the cereals with the seasoning.
  • Your 3 Grains summer saladis ready to be tasted and served cold.
