"A local deli inspired me to attempt making this at home! A honey-lemon dressing complements the flavor and textures of this salad. Serve immediately or let stand in fridge for 12 hours to allow the flavors to meld."

  1. Place wheat berries in a pot and cover with water; soak for 3 to 6 hours.
  2. Drain wheat berries and add 4 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until wheat berries are tender yet firm to the bite and water is absorbed, 1 to 2 hours. Remove pot from heat and cool.
  3. Mix carrots, celery, onion, and parsley into wheat berries.
  4. Whisk lemon juice, soy sauce, tahini, olive oil, honey, and salt together in a bowl until smooth; stir into wheat berries mixture.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can serve this salad immediately, but I found it got better after 24 hours in the fridge.
  • I used Bragg® Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce.
  • Vegetable stock or chicken stock can be substituted for the water when cooking the wheat berries.
  • For a more firm wheat berry, cook for only an hour.
