Warm apple-walnut wheat berry salad
Uncooked wheat berries
⅓ cup(s), fresh, or frozen and defrosted
Unsweetened orange juice

1 tsp, chopped
¼ tsp, or to taste
⅛ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste
2 rib(s), medium, chopped small
Granny Smith apple
1 medium, chopped small
¼ cup(s), toasted
- In a medium saucepan, combine wheat berries, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until wheat berries are tender but retain some chew, about 1 hour.
