Wheat Berry Salad With Red Fruit

55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
20 ingredients
6 servings
For this sweet and tart salad, wheat berries are blended with cranberries, apples and pecans and tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette—a winning combination. A perfect side dish to take to a potluck or simply serve it over a bed of peppery arugula for vegan lunch. Recipe from Eating Well March/April 2007. (Cooking time is resting time). If you wish to sweeten your salad up a bit but don't have Agave, feel free to sub 1 T of honey. Also of note, I have made this with a peach and 2 apricots instead of the grapes and apple (thereby making this wheat berry salad with ORANGE fruit) and it is delightful!!!! This salad is even better on day 2, so it's a great make ahead recipe.
