  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 Pound wheat berries
  • 1/2 Pound roasted almonds
  • 1/2 Pound pomegranate seeds

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the wheat berries and reduce the heat to a fast simmer. Cook until tender but still chewy, about 1 hour. Pour the wheat berries into a bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients. Mix well and let sit for 1 hour.
