Yummy!  This is a great recipe.  I had been looking for a salad that my kids would love, and this is it.  It has just the right crunch v. chew ratio for them.  :)

i make a very simular salad and it is really delish, esp. on a hot day when you want a tasty lunch. it stores well in the fridge also! the wheat berries can also be substituted with short grain brown rice, spelt berries, or any other kind of whole grain (or a mix!).  ;D
