Sprouted Wheat Salad

This salad is so good, my whole family is addicted to it…the sprouted wheat berries taste deliciously nutty, just like raw peanuts.
An absolute must try!

You will need…

3/4 cup wheat berries
4 cups arugula or baby spinach
1/3 cup chopped cranberries/raisins
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 lemon
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt n pepper to taste.

For sprouting the wheat berries…
Soak wheat berries overnight. Next day drain and cover with wet paper towel and leave on kitchen counter. Wash, drain and cover after every 12 hours for the next 3-4 days till the wheat berries just begin to sprout.

Do not sprout the wheat beyond this…as the berries loose their texture and taste.

For the dressing:

Mix together 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, 1 tbsp honey and some salt n pepper to taste.

For assembling the salad:

Toss arugula/babyspinach with the sprouted wheat, chopped cranberries, coarsely chopped walnuts with the lemon honey dressing.

serve immediately!
