Wheat Berry, Apricot and Arugula Salad

Serves 4
Time 10 hr
Wheat berries have a slightly nutty flavor and nice chewy texture that makes them a great start to a salad with naturally sweet dried apricots and tangy shallots soaked in apple juice. Make sure to soak the wheat berries overnight to shorten cooking time.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup wheat berries
  • 2 small shallots, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 2 cups packed arugula
  • 1 cup dried apricots (about 24), chopped
  • 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, to taste

Method

Place wheat berries in a large bowl and cover with several inches of cold water. Let soak 8 hours or overnight.

Drain and rinse wheat berries and place in a medium saucepan. Cover by several inches with fresh water and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer until berries are tender and some break open, about 45 minutes. Drain well.

Place wheat berries, shallots, apple juice, celery, apricots, salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss to combine.

Let sit at least 1 hour to blend flavors, then toss with arugula and almonds to serve.
