3/4 cup uncooked wheat berries
1-1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed
1 cup celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh dill weed or 1 teaspoon dried
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon paprika
baby spinach leaves, rinsed

Rinse the wheat berries in a colander. Place the wheat berries in medium pot with 1-1/2 cups salted water. Bring the water to a boil; reduce the heat to very low, cover the pot and simmer for 1 hour until tender and swollen. Transfer the wheat berries to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, dry mustard, dill and paprika.

To the bowl of wheat berries, add the blueberries, celery, and onion; add the dressing and spinach leaves, and toss to coat all with the dressing. Serves 6.

Quinn, wheat berries are whole, unprocessed kernels of wheat about the size of a popcorn kernel, whereas cracked wheat is the whole berry broken into coarse, medium and fine fragments. Both are sold in health-food stores and may be cooked as cereal, or in PILAFS, breads or other dishes.

Wheatberries are delicious. They also come in 'soft' and 'hard' varieties. For salads, I would suggest the soft, as they take less time to cook. I like them with lemon, olives, parsley, and Moroccan spices.
