Going with the grain



I had the intention of boring you all with the saga of my ambitious dinner party from Saturday night. However, time got away and I never was able to seize the camera for documentation. Yesterday I snagged bits and pieces of things from the fridge along with about 1 1/2 cups of dried wheat berries from Whole Foods. I made a salad of it all: the berries, carrot, scallion, heart of palm, marinated artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and celery. It was (and will be again tonight) oh so healthy and delicious. The pic is purloined, but my heart is pure. Oh, and the dressing was left from Saturday when it was used on a faux Thai green papaya salad. Ingredients? Stuff. I don't know. I was busy.

Looks good enough to eat, for sure! And healthy works too. Nice colors makes it even more appetizing. Guess the dinner party was a hit!

I don't know if I have ever had dried wheat berries before. Must make a trip to Whole Foods this weekend and seek them out.

This is one wholesome salad. I love the add of artichoke hearts. Thanks for sharing.
Happy Weekend!

Was that a metric or English amount of "stuff"? And was it free range, organic, gluten free stuff?
