Curried Wheat Berry Salad

Recipe by  

"Delicious, Mediterranean-influenced salad. It's a healthy whole food salad that can be eaten as a main dish or side dish. Eat immediately or chill for several hours. I think it gets better after sitting for a few hours, as the raisins soften up and the wheat berries absorb some spice. Eat up!"

Directions

  1. Place wheat berries in a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand 8 hours to overnight. Drain.
  2. Bring 6 cups water and wheat berries to a boil in a saucepan; add 1 teaspoon olive oil and salt. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the wheat berries are tender and have split open, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Drain and rinse wheat berries with cold water.
  3. Whisk 1/3 cup olive oil, curry powder, parsley, red pepper flakes together in a bowl until dressing is evenly mixed.
  4. Combine wheat berries, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and raisins in a bowl. Drizzle dressing over wheat berry mixture; toss to coat and season with salt.

I used coconut oil instead of olive oil for the flavor, added garlic salt and shredded carrots for color and flavor. Turned out pretty good!

This was a great recipe. I cooked the wheat berries a day ahead and refrigerated them until the day of my party. I also added dried mango. Yummy!
