This salad has it all going on. I like the addition of salmon to make this an entree, but it could certainly go without.
  • 1 cup uncooked wheat berries
  • 2 medium apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
  • 8 oz smoked salmon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  1. Place wheat berries in a medium bowl; cover with several inches of water and let sit 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain soaked wheat berries and place in a saucepan covered with 2-3 inches of water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cook, uncovered, 1 hour or until tender. Drain and rinse with cold running water to bring to room temperature; transfer to a large bowl.
  3. To the wheat berries, add the apple, and next 4 ingredients (through celery).
  4. In a small bowl, combine oil and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, whisking well to combine. Drizzle dressing over wheat berry mixture; toss to coat.
