Wheat Berry Salad

The chewy wheat berries in this salad give it an extra dose of fiber and a texture that's unusually pleasant. You can find wheat berries at specialty food stores and in the whole grains department of larger grocery stores.
  • 1 1/2 c. wheat berries, cooked until puffed & chewy
  • 1/2 c. apple juice
  • 1/3 c. raisins
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1 c. thinly sliced spinach
  • 1 T. roasted sesame seeds
  • 3 T. rice vinegar
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Prepare wheat berries according to the package directions. Heat the apple juice to boiling and pour carefully over the raisins & allow to sit for 5 minutes. Then drain the apple juice and save for another use. Mix the raisins into the wheat berries.

Coat a small skillet with cooking spray. Saute the mushrooms, onion and red pepper until just tender. Add them to the wheat berries. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
