 adapted from a recipe in _Wholesome Harvest_
 1 orange or tangerine                       6 Tbs. orange juice
 1 1/2 c. cooked wheat berries               3 Tbs. cider vinegar
 1 1/4 c. cooked or canned cannellini        1 Tbs. prepared spicy brown mustard
    beans, drained and rinsed                1 Tbs. soy sauce
 1 c. diced jicama		            1/4 tsp. salt
 1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper	    1/4 tsp. pepper
 1/4 c. sliced scallion
 2 Tbs. chopped cilantro (or parsley)
      Using a sharp knife, remove the peel and pith from the orange.  Chop the
 orange and set aside. 
      In a large bowl, combine the wheat berries, cannellini, jicama, bell
 pepper, scallion, and coriander.
      In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.  Pour over the salad
 and toss to combine.
      Serves 6 to 8.
 Notes:  I used spelt berries because I am alergic to wheat and used navy beans
         because I've yet to find a canellini in Morgantown!  I thought this
         salad was good, but I think I'll try to make the dressing a little
         zippier next time, either by adding some grated orange rind or some
         lemon juice to the dressing.  I liked it well enough made "as is",
         though, to post it.
