A Wheat Berry Salad with Apricots and Almonds is light, bright and delicious!

“Salad” can mean a lot of things, ranging from snoozers like iceberg lettuce and anemic tomatoes to showstoppers like the Cleveland Clinic’s Wheat Berry Salad with Apricots and Almonds — a colorful dish that’s bursting with flavor and nutrients. With their intact bran, germ and endosperm, wheat berries are among the best of “good carbs,” and they’re the absolute definition of a whole grain! Fresh apricots offer their delicious sweet-tart taste — not to mention carotenoids. And then there’s the crunch factor: nutrient-rich toasted almonds and celery. All this goodness lies atop a bed of farm fresh salad greens and is finished with a tarragon and lemon vinaigrette for flavor and tang. Whether you serve it as a superstar dinner side or a lovely lunch, it’s sure to become a staple.
