"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a fabulous grain salad. Very nutritious, and always well received. It's a great recipe for a picnic or a potluck. Wheatberries are becoming more common, but can be found at any health store, often in the bulk section. I've always used soft (versus hard) wheatberries.
The wheatberries have to soak over night and cook on the stove for about an hour, but the recipe is incredibly simple to make.
