Finally, the Salad Eater eats a salad! It may not be the prettiest salad in the world but it is a salad nonetheless…

I was getting sick of eating restaurant food and canned soup so I made the long journey to Fairway yesterday and stocked up on actual ingredients. Inspired by a suggestion by my friend Dawn I bought stuff to make a wheatberry salad. It was such a delicious melange! Crunchy from the celery and carrots, fresh tasting from the parsley and lemon, sweet from the raisins, nutty from the wheatberries and the walnuts, and umami-y from the roasted chicken. Overall a deeply satisfying meal for someone who is totally sick of winter.
