Sunset Wheatberry Salad by Angela Piller (p. 145)

Contains honey

Angela brought this sweet, wholesome salad to our chocoluck and everyone really enjoyed it. I didn’t even think I liked wheatberries and it was so good that I ate every last bite.

Persimmons are in season during the fall and winter. This is easy to remember because they are very striking on the tree when in fruit. Persimmons are a ripe, bright orange during the grey time of year when the trees have lost all their leaves.

Makes 3 cups
Takes 10 minutes

4 Fuyu persimmons, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup cocoa nibs
1/3 cup raisins
2/3 cup cooked wheat berries

1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 1/2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl. Combine dressing ingredients and whisk. Pour dressing over salad and gently toss. Enjoy!
