Directions

  1. Soak wheat berries in a bowl of water for at least 5 hours or overnight. Drain and place in a slow cooker with enough water to cover by one inch. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 5 to 6 hours, until tender. Add more water if needed. When tender, drain, and rinse under cold water to chill.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese, pineapple and lemon juice. Stir in the dry pudding mix until smooth. Stir in the wheat berries until evenly coated. Fold in whipped topping just before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.

I make a similar version, with no lemon juice and with whipped cream (250ml) I add a touch of sugar to make up for the whipped cream over the whipped topping. :) Gets rave reviews wherever I take it!

Tasty-riffic! I really like the pineapple in it. However, it was a little bit too rich for me, so next time I might use a little bit less cream cheese.

I love this salad for special occasions. It keeps well, I even eat it for breakfast the next day. I usually add some canned peaches too ( the slices can make a pretty flowery pattern over the top).

I love this salad. Save yourself some time by soaking the wheat in boiling water over night. Put the wheat in a thermos or coffee butler and pour boiling water over it. Put the lid on and let it sit over night. The wheat will be perfect by morning. This salad also freezes well and so does the cooked wheat itself.

I have made a similar recipe for years, but I recently had a guest that was allergic to pineapple so I substituted kiwi for the pineapple. It turned out fabulous! And the color with the little kiwi seeds made it look so much more interesting! I have also substituted the cream cheese for plain Greek yogurt, which I actually preferred!

Love,love, love this salad. More of a dessert than a main dish for sure! But so good. A family favorite in our home for Thanksgiving & Christmas.

So glad to have found this recipe, just like my grandma used to make! This makes a large batch, a perfect amount for entertaining. Next time I would reduce the amount of cool whip.
