WHEAT BERRY + SPINACH SALAD RECIPE
1 cup wheat berries
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 clove crushed garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup baby spinach, chopped
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup sliced scallions
1/4 cup unsalted, toasted pistachios
1 ounce crumbled goat cheese
Combine wheat berries in a medium pot with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, pop on a cover, and simmer for anywhere between 30-60 minutes or until the wheat berries are cooked through.
In the meantime, grab a large bowl and whisk together extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Add in baby spinach, golden raisins, and warm wheat berries.
Stir everything together and adjust the seasonings. The heat of the wheat berries will wilt the spinach and plump up the raisins.
Stir in the scallions and pistachios before topping with the crumbled goat cheese.
Serve and enjoy!!
