Blue Dog Bakery's Wheat Berry Salad

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by sabradiamond

This recipe is deceptively delicious! The first time I saw it I thought this was far too healthy to taste good! Boy was I wrong! This is a very filling alternative to pasta or potato salads. The wheat berries can be hard to find. I have to go to a small health food store to find them. Cooking time is primarily the time it takes to cook the wheat berries, also walnut oil is VERY expensive, I just use olive oil

I have eaten this several times at the Blue Dog. It is one of my favorite side dishes.
