Wheat berries give this healthy grain-salad recipe a toothsome bite. The chopped kale can be swapped for any dark leafy green, such as spinach or chard, if desired.

I made this to use up some wheat berries in my pantry and loved it. It was even better the next day for lunch! Will definitely make again.
