Most people are used to cooking buckwheat only as porridge or a simple side dish, and few people know that you can make a salad with this cereal. Many people will find this dish incongruous in ingredients, but fans of new flavors will surely appreciate. For the recipe I used green buckwheat, but roasted will be just as good. The salad can replace a full dinner, including in the Lent, will take a worthy place on the festive table, pleasantly surprise and delight guests!
