Wheat Berry Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette - ButterYum

This salad is a little out of the ordinary, but it's full of flavor and really satisfies that chew factor. Look for cooked wheat berries in the freezer section of your grocery store.  If you can't find them, I've included cooking instructions for dry wheat berries below.

Salad:

1 1/2 - 2 cups cooked wheat berries

3/4 chopped walnuts

2-3 stalks celery, finely chopped

1/2 cup tart dried cherries, chopped

2 scallions, chopped (white and green parts)

1/2 cup finely chopped parsley

Dressing:

1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 1/2 teaspoon prepared spicy brown mustard (or Dijon)

1 clove garlic, minced

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Prepare dressing by whisking together oil, balsamic, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper; pour over remaining ingredients.  Toss and serve.

Note: to cook wheat berries, boil them in water or chicken stock for 50-60 minutes until they are tender and chewy.
