Tangy Wheatberry Salad with Salmon

This salad has been my favorite for a while at the Wholefoods salad bar.... a tangy wheatberry salad. This is my reinvention of it, a perfect and healthy side to fish and chicken. In this meal, a Trader Joe's salmon patty (80kcal) and some summer squash and cherry tomatoes.

1 TB tamari
1/2 ts sesame oil
1 TB balsamic vinegar
2 TB fruity olive oil
4 scallions, sliced
1/4 cp dried cranberries
1/4 cp pecans, toasted
1/2 red onion, diced

Cook in vegetable broth until al dente:
1/4 cp japonica rice
1/4 cp wild rice mix
1/2 cp wheat berries

Mix all ingredients, add some lemon juice, chill and serve as a side as 1/4 cup (ca. 100kcal).

  1. That looks great. I've only been able to find a wheatberry salad once - and loved it. Going to have to find all the ingrediance (especially the wheatberries) and try this one - looks fantastic. Even better than the one I had tried.

    Thank you.
