Earthly delight! This is an awesome salad. I left out the pumpkin seeds, did not miss them. I will make this one again as I often get wheat berries in my CSA share, and don't always know what to do with them. Thank you for the very healthy lunch!

I have made this many times over the years, and must apologize for not rating it sooner. It is excellent. From this recipe, I leaned how tasty roasted beets can be.

Great recipe I'll make many times I'm sure. I really love wheat berries (spelt berries in my case), and appreciated the simple dressing. The beets were fantastic. In the end I didn't bother opening the tin of black beans I had to go with this, because I liked it so much as-is. I also goofed and forgot the green onions & cilantro at the market. Will make again using chickpeas or lentils. Thanks!

Awesome recipe. I used sliced almonds instead of walnuts, did not use scallions, garbanzos instead of black beans, and skipped the scallions. Love recipes that are so easy to use substitutions.

Because I had to make so many changes, I am not assigning stars, but I have to say, I suspect this would be a five star recipe. I did not have beans, cilantro, rice vinegar or walnuts. I still had a very tasty salad at the end of the day. I love wheat berries, and cook them in my rice cooker. I had roasted beets already available, so did not caramelize mine, which I am sure added to the taste. Used balsamic instead of rice wine vinegar, and I think that went well with the ingredients. I woldl probably hold back a bit on the lime juice - limes do vary in acidity and mine were perhaps a tad too tart. Still, all in all, even with my massive changes, this was a very enjoyable salad.

This will be a new favorite summer salad. Really tasty! I left out the walnuts (allergic) but added some sunflower seeds instead. I also used canned beets, cut in julienne, to save time. Delicious! and so healthy.
