Yes I had the same experience as above.
I gave my girlfriend a bowl full to take home for her and her husband. She’s always on a diet and didn’t know what a wheat berry is. I told her the truth and figured she might not eat it ( he loves everything I make) to my very pleasant surprise she loved it and wants me to make it for their next bbq!
Thank you, I’m making more when finished with this bc I really love it!

I made this recipe earlier this week. My husband is a meat and potatoes guy and I wasn’t sure if he’d eat the salad. So I made him a boneless chicken breast and gave him a healthy amount of the salad to go with it. He took one bite and said he liked it. After another bite he told me it was delicious. We’ve had it a couple times as a side dish this week and he asked to have it for lunch today and asked that I put in enough so he and his brother could share it for lunch. I just got a call and his brother wants the recipe as well. Thanks for all of the delicious recipes!
Could I prepare the wheat berries the night before I want to take this to work for lunch? Or do I need to do it the morning of?
