Wheat Berry Salad with Cranberries

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 30 min


  • 2 cups wheat berries
  • 7 cups water
  • 1 cup long grain black rice
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 T fresh thyme
  • 2 T fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Juice from 1 large orange or 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2-3 T oil (I used avocado oil)
  • salt to taste


  1. Put the 2 cups of wheat berries and 7 cups of water in a large pot on the stove. 
  2. Bring to a boil and then turn down, cover and simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Cook the rice according to the package instructions.  You can even do both of these steps a day ahead if you like.  I did that myself. 
  4. Once the rice and wheat berries are cooled, add in the thyme, parsley, cranberries and salt. 
  5. In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together to make a dressing. 
  6. Pour the dressing over the dry ingredients and mix well.
