This sprouted wheat berry & kale salad is colourful and tangy with the perfect amount of crunch! Sprouted wheat berries are nutritious, have a wonderful chewy texture and add a satisfying heartiness to this recipe. Sprouting reduces their cook time, aids in digestion and bioavailability, and improves taste and texture. They pair perfectly with the crisp kale, crunchy nuts and pomegranate, salty feta cheese and light, citrusy dressing. It’s perfect as a side dish or light lunch, and keeps well in the fridge. It also works well to make ahead for a crowd, just double the recipe if needed!
If you can’t have gluten, this recipe would also work well with sprouted hulless oats or sprouted quinoa. Substituting another type of citrus based on availability or preference would also work well, blood orange or even all lemon dressing would be delicious! If you would like to make this recipe vegan, you can substitute vegan cheese and use another liquid sweetener in place of the honey.
