Wheat berry salad

A delicious, hearty salad for cold winter days. Wheat berries are full of fiber and consequently result in a nice feeling of satiety even after consuming far fewer calories than one would of processed foods.

Ingredients
1.5 cup wheat berries
0.5 cup craisins
0.5 cup celery
1/3 cup parsley
1/3 cup walnuts
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
0.5 tbsp honey
0.25 tsp salt

Preparation
Cook the wheat berries in enough water to cover them 2-inch deep for an hour or until tender.

Drain and toss the hot wheat berries with the craisins. Whisk together juices, maple syrup, honey and salt.

Toast walnuts in a hot pan, then chop. Chop celery and parsley.

Once the wheat berry and craisin mix has cooled some, mix all ingredients together. Toss well to combine. Allow to rest for an hour.
