WHEAT BERRY, ORANGE, AND BEAN SALAD
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.
