Lovely and elegant, just like you. This salad features perfectly tender and chewy little wheat berries with roasted butternut squash, tart dried cherries, toasted walnut, caramelized shallot, kale, and fresh herbs tossed in an apple cider vinaigrette. It is hearty enough be a standalone lunch, but it would also feel right at place accompanying a bowl of soup or other dinner item. Made with organic VT-grown wheat berries from Nitty Gritty Grain Co.
If you're unfamiliar, wheat berries are whole wheat kernels without the husk. Once boiled, they have a wonderfully satisfying tender and chewy texture, with an earthy, somewhat nutty flavor. They could be best compared to farro or barley.
One pint of salad.
