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.
