1 cup whole spelt berries soaked 6 to 8 hours
2 cups water
8 ounces green beans cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste

2. While the spelt is cooking, steam the green beans until just tender. Set aside to cool.
3. Transfer the cooked spelt to a large bowl along with the green beans. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
