Have you guys tried buckwheat yet?! It is 100% going to be your new favorite grain to make. I am hooked on using this in dishes and plan on sharing a few more ideas on how to use it soon here on the blog.

I am on a major salad kick right now when it comes to blog content. It is warm out, they’re easy and it is such a simple way to eat veggies and also add in things you *actually* crave. These aren’t boring salads but delicious and hearty ones that also have killer dressings to drizzle on top.

I cannot wait to hear what you think of this!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

What ingredients you need to make this buckwheat salad and goat cheese dressing:

  • Cooked buckwheat – this is such a hidden gem in the grain family! Super hearty, it is gluten-free and great way to spice things up a bit from rice or quinoa.
  • Baby arugula – I *love* adding arugula to salads. You could use another green if you want like spinach too here.
  • Seedless cucumbers – I crave the crunch of a cucumber in every single salad we make.
  • Steamed or roasted beets – you can also cheat and buy these already cooked (makes it easier!).
  • Scallions – just the green parts you will use here.
  • Canned artichoke hearts – these are on major rotation lately. I love love putting them in salads and on pizzas.
  • Toasted pistachios – or you don’t need to toast them but I love cooking them for about 2-3 minutes on low heat with some oil.
  • Goat cheese – this creamy cheese is SO perfect to make a dressing out of.
  • Fresh mint leaves and chives – I have been using the ones from my garden!

How to make this easy and healthy dish:

  1. Add salad ingredients to a large bowl and toss
  2. Add dressing ingredients to a blender to blend until smooth and creamy
  3. Drizzle dressing on top of salad and enjoy!

FAQs on making this buckwheat salad with goat cheese dressing:

  • What is buckwheat? Buckwheat is shockingly a type of seed (not wheat). It is in a group of foods called pseudocereals, which are seeds like quinoa and amaranth! It is high in minerals and antioxidants and also has decent protein compared to most grains.
  • Is buckwheat gluten-free? Yes!! It is gluten-free even though it sounds like it isn’t because the word “wheat” is in it.
  • Can you serve buckwheat cold? I like eating it cool or at room temperature like in this salad. Warm can work if you prefer, but I like them cooler more.
