Wheat Berry Waldorf Salad

Wheat Berry Waldorf Salad

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup wheat berries
  • 1 cup cooked lentils (brown or green, canned works perfectly)
  • 1 cup walnut halves (toasted and chopped)
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes (halved)
  • 1 granny smith apple (chopped)
  • 75g Macedonian or Bulgarian Feta Cheese (Any feta will do though)

Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons olive or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea or kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Note

A traditional Waldorf salad also includes celery.  Add it if you wish, but this version has plenty of great texture already.

Directions

1. In a small sauce pan, cover wheat berries with about 1.5 - 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer, uncovered for 45 minutes. Drain any remaining liquid and cool.
2. In a small bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients together.
3. Combine remainder of salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss gently with dressing until everything is well coated.
4. Crumble feta cheese over individual portions or a large serving platter.
