This is a delightful dish! I couldn't find wheat berries so I had to use cracked wheat, prepared it the same way except skipped the overnight soak. I don't care for onions so used chopped celery. The dressing on this was perfect with the nutty wheat, fruit, and walnuts. I used plenty of black pepper and served at room temperature as you suggested. We loved this - thanks for sharing a great recipe!
Absolutely wonderful! I must add wheat berries to our menu more often than once or twice a year. I used tart dried cherries but I think barberries would work, too. Good and healthy and you can't complain about that. Served with simple pan grilled chicken and a steamed carrots. Reviewed for Best of 2011.
Oh wow, this is one of the best tasting grain salads Ive eaten in a long time! Its soooooooo full of flavour and also very pretty to look at! I used spelt berries as I cant have wheat and that worked out really nicely, they have a bit of a honey sweetness to them, so that worked really well with the tasty dressing. YUM!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this superb recipe with us, duonyte!

One of the nice things about the way I schedule my cooking/baking is that I can have Christmas or Easter or whatever holiday (at least in the kitchen) whenever I like, as with this recipe! Very, very different for the 2 of us, but also very enjoyable eating, for sure! I did use dried cranberries & those, along with the seeds & nuts ~ Absolutely wonderful, especially with the wheat berries! Great keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
