Thank you to Charlene Blackburn for this wonderful recipe!
I love it when people share their tried and true methods for using whole wheat berries. This satisfying salad is another perfect way to finally start enjoying the wheat that’s been stored in your home for years. With very little work you can create a dish that’s packed with nutrition and such a fun gourmet alternative to the usual salad selections!
