  1. Soak wheat berries in a bowl of water for at least 5 hours or overnight. Drain and place in a slow cooker with enough water to cover by one inch. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 5 to 6 hours, until tender. Add more water if needed. When tender, drain, and rinse under cold water to chill.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese, pineapple and lemon juice. Stir in the dry pudding mix until smooth. Stir in the wheat berries until evenly coated. Fold in whipped topping just before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.

I have made a similar recipe for years, but I recently had a guest that was allergic to pineapple so I substituted kiwi for the pineapple. It turned out fabulous! And the color with the little k...

Love,love, love this salad. More of a dessert than a main dish for sure! But so good. A family favorite in our home for Thanksgiving & Christmas.

Printed this recipe off quite some time ago, made it, wrote notes on the printout but never rated it. The wheat berries don't need to be soaked and don't need to be cooked in the slow cooker. ...

I didn't use lemon juice , but I did use 1/2 c of sugar

A prairie classic! I substituted real whipped cream like a previous user also suggested. I also used waaaay more cooked wheat berries (about 4C). I feel the amount of sauce can tolerate an incre...
