Wheat Berry & Cranberry Salad

Wheat berries are a terrific way to increase fiber in your diet and a wonderful way to let your rice cooker do the work for you!
  • 1 c. wheat berries -- find them at the natural foods section of your grocery store
  • 2 c. water
  • Pinch salt
  • 2/3 c. dried cranberries
  • 2 green onions, bias-sliced
  • 1/2 c. raspberry vinaigrette -- choose your favorite variety

Place the wheat berries in a rice cooker bowl. Add the water and salt; cover the cooker and turn on the HIGH setting.

When the rice cooker switches itself to the WARM (or OFF on some models) position, remove the berries and rinse them under cool water and allow them to drain.

Place the drained wheat berries and the remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Serve as a unique side dish with chicken or pork.
