This is a delicious, nutty Waldorf salad that is packed with flavor. It's great anytime of the year, just substitute some ingredients for what's in season. Pomegranate seeds, mandarin oranges, or dried cranberries would be good too.

This sounded like just what I was looking for, and with just a few minor changes (strictly to suit ourselves) it was big hit. I made up the dressing first (from the apple juice on)and dressed the wheatberries while they were still hot as I believe that they will absorb the flavors better that way. I wanted something a little less sweet, a bit more "main dish", so I added 3 stalks of diced celery, 1/2 of a large red onion, diced, and 1 large carrot, grated. Also swapped dried cranberries for raisins, pecans for walnuts, and used a huge Mutsu apple (extra crisp, not too sweet). Definitely a keeper!

I was ready to toss this receipe as a "salad" but instead used it as a breakfast meal andit was fantastic. I made it the night before, spooned out what I wanted for breakfast in a bowl, topped it with 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of butter, heated it until warm and it was great. It makes a TON so I would suggest halving the recipe.
