Something rather lovely happens when you soak the chewier whole grains (such as rye or wheat berries) in a pickling brine; the tangy notes make the chew that much more enjoyable.

How to Make It

Step 1

Trim bottoms off sprouts; pull off bigger leaves to yield 8 cups. Reserve sprout "hearts" for another use.

Step 2

Combine oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add leaves and onion; toss gently to coat. Arrange leaves on a platter; sprinkle with Pickled Rye Berries, cranberries, and toasted walnuts.
