Waldorf Wheatberry Salad


1/2 C wheatberries
1 and a quarter cup water
3 celery stalks, cut
1/3 C Craisins
Handful slivered almonds
1 Fuji apple sliced
1/4 C sour cream
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 T honey
salt and pepper (You will need it. The wheatberry comes alive with seasoning.)
1/8 t ground ginger
handful thinly sliced flat leaf parsley


  • Cook wheatberry according to directions. For me, I put the wheatberries and water in a sauce pan stirred it, brought it to a boil, stirred it, covered it and simmered on low for 30 minutes. If there’s a little moisture, just let it simmer on a little higher heat and stir for about 3 minutes more, then take off burner and let sit.
  • Cool the wheatberries. I put them in a bowl warm and stuck them in the freezer for 20 minutes. They were cool enough. I was hungry.
  • Combine with all other ingredients and bring two spoons to the party. Even those who have sworn to never eat trees will still want a bite.
