From The Whole Foods Market Cookbook Wheat berries are the mother grain from which pasta, bread, and flour are derived. Most of us have never tasted the true flavor of wheat. Little wheat berries pack a nutlike flavor and are pleasantly chewy. Use a crunchy, firm, sweet-tart apple (such as a Granny Smith or Gala) for this salad. Lemon juice and vinegar keep chopped apples from darkening so you may make this salad the day before serving. Try substituting dried apples for the fresh ones for another flavor variation.
