PrintEmail Wheat berries are the mother grain from which pasta, bread and flour are derived. Most of us have never tasted their true flavor. Use a crunchy, firm, sweet-tart apple such as a Granny Smith or gala for this salad. Lemon juice and vinegar keep chopped apples from darkening, so you may make this salad the day before serving. Ingredients 2 cups dried wheat berries7 cups water, plus more for soaking1 cup walnuts, chopped2 apples, cored and chopped (Granny Smith or gala recommended)1 cup black or golden raisins1 cup chopped celery1 cup finely chopped fresh parsley1/4 cup apple cider vinegar1/4 cup apple juice2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil2 tablespoons lemon juice Instructions Soak wheat berries in water to cover overnight. Drain and set aside. In a saucepan, bring 7 cups water to a boil. Add wheat berries and cook at a rolling simmer 50 minutes or until they are totally cooked through (they will retain a firm, chewy texture). Drain and set aside to cool. Transfer wheat berries to a large mixing bowl and add the walnuts, apples, raisins, chopped celery, chopped parsley, apple cider vinegar, apple juice, 2 teaspoons salt, black pepper, ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, olive oil and lemon juice.
