Wheatberry Salad

Wheatberry Salad

Servings: 12 1/2 cup

Notes:  I love this salad. The fava beans take it over the top. If you don’t want to spend the time preparing the beans, you can substitute garbanzo beans. It will still be great. Please don’t use frozen fava beans. I already made that mistake…

1 cup fresh parboiled fava beans, hulled, cooled
2 cups uncooked wheat berries
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup pistachios heaping
1/4 (+) cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 cup golden raisins (if large, chop them)
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup (scant) crumbled feta

Place wheat berries in salted water to 2 inches above berries. Bring to boil, cover and simmer for 1 hr or until tender. Drain. Toast nuts in oven 8 min @ 350. Mix dressing, and berries and raisins, stir well. Let stand to room temp. Add nuts, onions, cilantro and cheese. Mix well.
