Wheat Berry and Wild Rice Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by drbecca26

This is a very hearty grain salad that can be served as a side or eaten on its own as a light lunch. Sometimes I use a balsamic vinaigrette in place of the Italian dressing, depending on what I have made up.

This was delicious. I didn't have Italian dressing or green onions, so I substituted Asian Ginger dressing and cilantro. Thanks for the great and easy dinner idea. (We actually enjoyed it both hot and cold.)
