Ginger Citrus Wheat Berry Salad

Wheat berries have shot into foodie fame these past couple of years. It’s funny how the old things always become new again. Wheat berries are whole wheat kernels that have had their husks removed. They’re a powerhouse of nutrition and fiber. With the addition of sweet tomatoes, creamy cannellini beans, briny feta, and tart scallions tossed with a Ginger Citrus vinaigrette, this is a season-less salad that is not only healthy but hearty.
