WHEAT BERRY SALAD WITH DRIED APRICOTS

1/4 c. chopped green onions
3 c. cooked whole wheat berries
1 can garbanzo beans (15 oz.)
1/2 c. dried apricots, sliced
1/2 c. dried cranberries
3 Tbsp. toasted walnut oil
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

I found this recipe in the February 2008 Better Homes and Gardens magazine. It was listed under the Healthy Category. I guess it won some sort of contest.
“My wife is always searching out new grains,” said winner Jamaine Batson of Salt Lake City. “This recipe gives wheat berries a nice light touch” said the judges.
Sounds good to me!
