Directions

  1. Bring water and wheat berries to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the wheat berries are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Drain any excess water and cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spread walnuts onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake walnuts in the preheated oven until toasted and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool.
  4. Whisk canola oil, raspberry wine vinegar, raspberry preserves, mustard, oregano, and black pepper together in a bowl until vinaigrette is smooth. Measure 1/2 cup vinaigrette and store remaining vinaigrette in an airtight container in the refrigerator for another use.
  5. Combine wheat berries, walnuts, pear, Gorgonzola cheese, cranberries, and green onions in a large bowl. Drizzle 1/2 cup vinaigrette over wheat berries mixture; toss to coat. Refrigerate for flavors to blend, about 30 minutes.

Made this today, and made it with no changes. At first I was leery of adding the mustard to the vinaigrette, especially since that was fantastic on its own, but was very pleased at the depth of flavor it added! I cant wait to make it again, I am sure this will be a regular staple in my menus!
