Wheat Berry Waldorf Salad Handrolls

To offset all those sweet treats that the baby is making me eat these days, I’ve been in need of some healthy and high protein options for lunch. So we came up with this Wheat Berry Waldorf Salad Handroll which offers a ton of protein in a little package that’s a mix of savory, sweet, tangy, and crunchy. Here’s how to make it…

Wheatberry Waldorf Salad Handrolls
(serves 8)

You’ll need…

For the salad:
-1 package wheat berries (approx 14 oz. found in rice section)
-2 cooked chicken breasts (we used pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store)
-1 cup chopped celery
-1 cup shredded carrots (optional)
-1 cup sliced green grapes
-1/2 cup sliced almonds
-1 cup diced jicama
-1 cup diced gala apples
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-salt and pepper to taste
Nori seaweed sheets

For the dressing:
-3/4 cups low fat buttermilk
-1/4 cup mayonnaise (we used vegan mayo, Veganaise)
-1 tbsp chopped chives
-1 tbsp chopped parsley
-1 tbsp Sriracha (optional)
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-salt and pepper to taste

Wheat Berry Waldorf Salad Handrolls

Here’s how…

1. Cook the wheat berries according to the package (usually 2 cups water to one cup wheat berry). Let cool.

2. Dice the apple and combine with lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside. Combine the chopped chicken breast, grapes celery, carrots, almonds and jicama.

3. Once wheat berries are cooled, add to chicken mixture with the apples and toss. Add salt and pepper. (If you’re planning to eat with Nori, leave salt out as the wraps will add saltiness.)

4. To make the dressing, combine all dressing ingredients in a bowl. Add sriracha if you prefer a tad of spice. And, if you don’t want any spice, add 1 tbsp dijon mustard instead.

5. Toss the dressing in with the salad. Wrap with Nori by placing some salad into the middle of a sheet and folding up into a cone shape. Secure the wrap together with a little bit of water where the wrap overlaps. If you’re not into seaweed, you can also eat the salad on it’s own. Simply add a pinch extra salt to make up for the lack of salt from the seaweed. You can make this in advance and refrigerate for up to 2 days before eating. Enjoy!

P.S. And this Coco-nutty Fudge for dessert!

  1. Oh dear Joy! I’m sorry in advance for leave you this comment here. I really admire you and I think your blog is a good blog, with really nice content but what a mess is Pippit. Since you guys are asking for our feedback, this is mine. It looks like the association with Taza and Josh is not working and probably you are the most affected part. You have a great online and business reputation but it looks like this app is not helping you at all. The first version of the app was a poor one, wich I can understand, you guys are new in this venture but charging it first with a fee, having all those bugs and problems it has wasn’t a smart move and now, suddenly it’s free because -like Taza implied- we not appreciated the fact that it was ads free. This is such a poor interpretation of what went wrong with the app. Also I imagine thal all this is a huge problem for Pippit, not only for the refunds but reputation wise it’s a disaster. I think you are a smart woman, leave it before it’s too late or at least hire some qualified people to manage the marketing aspects of the app. For me Taza’s latest post is really not helping to improve the damage and sometimes I feel that let her a comment is useless since they are not always approved or answered. I hope you do the best for you and I wish you nothing but success but please, run away from Pippit while you can. Best wishes, M.
