Recipe: Sprouted Wheat Berry Salad

This winter I have been experimenting with sprouting various seeds. I posted recently about sprouting wheat berries and how delicious I find them.  Recently Roni from GreenLiteBites posted a recipe where she used a sweet mustard dressing.  As soon as I saw it I realized how delicious it would be and wanted to try it.  I came up with the following recipe that was delicious and perfect for a cold winter day where spring seem so far away.  It has just a bit of a kick from the combination of mustard, vinegar, and onions in it.  Even the man of the house gave it a thumbs up, after commenting on how the wheat looked a bit like spiders.

Spicy Sprouted Wheat Berry Salad


  • 1 1/2 cups Wheat Berries
  • 1/2 White Onion (The kind with enough flavor to burn your eyes when chopping)
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 3 (generous) servings Roni’s Maple Mustard Dressing
  • 1 cup raisins soaked in hot water until they are nice and plump


  • Start the wheat berries sprouting a few days before you want to make the salad.
  • Let it grow until the tips of the green leaves show up, it seems to add a nice level of sweet to the salad.
  • Look up Roni’s salad dressing and mix up a batch, tweaking it as you go for the flavor you want.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let sit a room temperature for a while for the flavors to mix.
  • Eat the delicious salad until it’s gone.
