Although they require little tending, the wheat berries do require a long cooking time. You may want to boil them on the weekend or the night before.

This salad is a great way to get your fill of vegetables, fruits, and protein all at once. The yogurt dressing also provides calcium, which is vital to bone health.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill.

Step 2

Combine first 3 ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a simmer; cover and cook for 2 hours, 15 minutes or until wheat berries are almost tender. Drain and place in a bowl; discard bay leaf. Coarsely chop 1 cup spinach leaves. Add chopped spinach, apple, bell pepper, dressing, and mustard to the wheat berries, and toss well.

Step 3

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Thinly slice chicken.

Step 4

Divide remaining spinach evenly among 4 plates. Place 1/2 cup wheat-berry mixture on top of spinach. Arrange chicken evenly over berry mixture; sprinkle with green onions.
