Bring 4 cups water to boil; add wheat berries. Reduce heat and cook, uncovered, for 1 hour or until tender and most of liquid is absorbed. Drain; set aside.
Cook carrots and celery in 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over moderate heat for 3 minutes or until tender. Add wheat berries and cranberries, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until hot. Transfer to serving bowl, and stir in next 4 ingredients (through pepper). Cover and keep warm.
Preheat oven to 450°. Brush a baking sheet with 1 teaspoon olive oil; arrange salmon, skin side down. Combine maple syrup and mustard; spread on top of salmon. Roast in middle of oven for 7 minutes. Turn broiler on; broil salmon for 3–4 minutes or until golden on top. Transfer salmon to a cutting board, and cut half of it into 4 (6-ounce) pieces; reserve the rest.
Reserve 1 1/2 cups wheat berry mixture. Stir mâche into the remaining wheat berry salad. Serve each piece of salmon on top of salad.

My friend told me she loved this recipe. While we did not make the Wheatberry Salad we love the Maple-Glazed Salmon! We use it every time we make salmon now! We put the salmon on a baking rack above the baking sheet. That way the oil drips off the fish.
