Wheat Berry Fruit Salad

Wheat Berry Fruit Salad

Summer is finally here! Summer is my favorite time of year on the prairie… Everything is green, crops are growing, and best of all, we’ve got all sorts of delicious produce! There’s nothing better than a fresh salad with some beef from the grill. 

I got the idea to add wheat berries to a fruit salad when I saw a fruit salad with quinoa in it. Why not add wheat berries instead? Perfect! This also makes a great breakfast and can be thrown together in 10 – 15 minutes. Simple and easy!

I added some pizzaz to this salad by topping it with a lime vinaigrette. The vinaigrette adds so much flavor to the various fruits. I used what fruits I had on hand, but feel free to experiment with what you’ve got! I think mango or any melon would be a delicious addition.

    What a great idea! I love the citrus vinaigrette, can’t wait to try with some honeydew and kiwi.
