Does anyone like Wheatberries as much as BBB does? How about a Wheatberry Salad?

I found this unique Wheatberry Salad recipe and want to share it. Wheatberries are whole, compressed wheat kernels. They're a nutty, flavorful addition to healthy, main-course salads like this one, made with dried cranberries, pecans, apples and vegetables. ---BBB


2 cups wheat berries
4 quarts water
1 cup diced celery
1 pound roughly chopped smoked turkey or rotisserie chicken
1 tart apple, peeled, cored and diced (about 1 cup)
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons walnut or corn oil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoos Worchesterhire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh chopped sage, or 1 teaspoon dried
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper, or more to taste

Place wheat berries in a large pot; add water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until tender, about 1 hour. Drain in a colander and cool.

Place wheat berries in a large bowl; stir in remaining ingredients. Serve cold or at room temperature. Store in a refrigerator. Serves 10.

I've never heard of wheatberries. Are they like GrapeNuts?

Not like grapenuts. They are whole wheat. Wonderfully chewy. ---BBB

The salad sounds good even without wheat berries. I've never had them, but it would be interesting to try.

My wife and I are into salads more, but never heard of wheatberries. We went to the Sweet Tomato for dinner last nite, and feasted on salads and clam chowder.
