"This is a delicious, nutty Waldorf salad that is packed with flavor. It's great anytime of the year, just substitute some ingredients for what's in season. Pomegranate seeds, mandarin oranges, or dried cranberries would be good too."

  1. Place wheat berries in a bowl, cover with water, and allow to soak for 5 minutes. Drain. Transfer into a large saucepan and stir in 6 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until wheat berries are tender, 60 to 80 minutes. Pour in more water if wheat becomes dry. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Mix wheat berries with apples, raisins, walnuts, parsley, pomegranate seeds, apple juice, vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a salad bowl. Can be chilled overnight if desired.

The only change that I made to this recipe was the way that I cooked the wheat berries. The only wheat berries that I could find were already parboiled so they only took 15 min to cook with no s...
