    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    In Montana this is quite a common fruit salad at potlucks. I used red durham wheat. You can use any raw wheat that has been washed. Go to a bulk foods place where they have barrels of spices and different foods and you can dip a scoop in and sack. We definitely do not call it "wheatberries" here but perhaps that is the name in the store.The best part is that it is easy, makes a lot and is a crowd pleaser. I guarantee the bowl will be wiped clean.

      I made this on request from my brother. I didnt measure the wheat but I doubled the cream cheese/ pudding part of the recipe for my son's birthday party yesterday. The recipe was easy to follow and tasted great. I have never cooked wheat, have only ground it into flour. It was time comsuming but easy enough to stir every once in a while. It was devoured quickly and all I have left is a small bowl full...I did send some home with the brother because he liked it so much. I do have left over wheat in the deepfreeze to make it again because I did get carried away with the amount. My MIL loved it and I am sending the recipe home with her so she can make it for an upcoming retirement party for work. Thanks a bunch for a new salad idea.

      I was going to post this recipe because its a hit at every one of my family get-togethers. I am so glad it is on here. Easy to make. Wonderfully delicious. You can substitue a can of cut-up peaches (with the juice of course) for the pineapple. (My hubby is allergic so we always need a stand-by.)

      This is quite good. Believe it or not, I was able to buy wheat at Walmart in the rice aisle. I made mine with Pumpkin pudding for my Autumn cookout & it disappeared quickly. Thanks Mom for a great recipe. Krsi Sue
