2 tablespoons shallot, minced
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon honey
½ lemon, zested and juiced
¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup toasted pecans, chopped
3 tablespoons cotija cheese, crumbled (you can replace with feta)
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, minced

1. Place wheat berry in a large pot and fill with 4 cups of water. Bring pot to a boil and cover.
2. Allow wheat berry to boil for 25 to 30 minutes or until soft with a bite. Drain and allow cooked wheat berry to cool.
