Wheat Berry Salad with Red Fruit

1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups cooked wheat berries
6 tbsp. fat free raspberry vinaigrette dressing
1/4 cup chopped mint leaves (optional)
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 apples, diced

To prepare dressing, blend the orange juice vinaigrette and salt.
Put the wheat berries in a medium bowl. Pour the dressing over them and toss to coat. Set aside for about 15 minutes, tossing occasionally.
Add dried cranberries, pecans, and diced apples to the wheat berries and mix. Add mint leaves if desired.


Pecans provide a wide array of nutrients that may protect your heart and arteries. In addition the whole grain wheat berries and fresh fruit are a great source of fiber.
