    Excellent blend of flavors - fresh ginger made the recipe great. Good way to add more fiber to your diet. Used feta cheese as that's what I had on hand.

    Loved the salad. The only change I made was to use walnuts as thats what I had on hand. The flavor was terrific and this would make a wonderful addition to a picnic or potluck menu. I'm also sharing with one of my friends who has a vegetarian child. Thanks again!

    I had been looking for ways to use my wheat berries, and this was delicious! Very filling, too.

    We loved this. I didn't have lemons or the juice so I used lime. I also forgot the fresh ginger so used powdered and it still was so good that my husband doesn't even want to try it with lemon juice. It is a frequent do over in our house. I especially loved the chewy quality of the wheat berries.

    This was a wonderful dish! I didn't have fresh ginger or coriander, so I used a pinch of ground ginger and a dash of nutmeg. I also added a little more sweetness to the dressing with stevia extract. Also, mixed in some currants. The complex flavors and textures made this a winner!

    I was looking for a recipe to use up wheat berries, and loved this one. I used regular raisins and feta cheese and omitted the cilantro. I'll make this again. It would be pretty with dried cranberries and fresh parsley.

    I made this salad with cranberries instead of raisins and served it without the goat cheese (because I didn't have it on hand) and it was fabulous! What a delicious side dish.

    Absolutely delicious. One of my friends made it for our Cooking Club and it was outstanding. She used cranberries instead of raisins though. Will definitely make it for the next family BBQ or picnic.
