- 2 cups hard red winter-wheat berries (see Tips)
- 7 cups cold water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- ⅓ cup dried cranberries
- 1 large Fuji apple, unpeeled, diced
- 1/2 cup pecan halves, toasted (see Tips) and coarsely chopped
- 3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
To prepare wheat berries: Sort through wheat berries carefully, discarding any stones. Rinse well under cool running water. Place in a large heavy saucepan. Add water and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour. Drain and rinse. Let cool to room temperature. (Makes about 4 1/2 cups.)
To prepare salad: Combine orange juice and cranberries in a small bowl. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Combine 3 cups of the cooked wheat berries, apple and pecans in a large bowl stir gently. Drain the cranberries, reserving the juice. Stir the cranberries into the wheat berry mixture. (Refrigerate the extra cooked wheat berries for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
Whisk the reserved orange juice, vinegar and oil in a small bowl until combined. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Pour over the salad and stir gently to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to combine. Serve cold or at room temperature.
Make Ahead Tip: To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate the cooked wheat berries for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month refrigerate the prepared salad for up to 1 day.
Wheat berries are whole, unprocessed grains of wheat. Varieties (hard, soft, spring or winter) can be used interchangeably. Labeling is inconsistent--you may find them labeled &ldquohard red winter wheat&rdquo without the words &ldquowheat berries.&rdquo Find them in natural-foods markets and online at kingarthurflour.com.
To toast pecan halves, spread nuts on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.
How do you make this Mixed Berry Fruit Salad:
- First, you’re going to wash and dry your mixed berries. Then place them all together in a large mixing bowl.
- I used a combination of sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. You can also add some pomegranate seeds or cherries if you have them on hand. Some kiwi or mango would be great as well.
- Whisk together the honey (or maple syrup) (leave out for low carb and Whole 30) and freshly squeezed lime (lemon works too) juice and gently toss together with the fruit.

How do you keep fruit salad from turning brown
When making a fruit salad recipe bowl, you often think about the fruits that usually turn brown. You wonder how to prevent this from happening. Fruits like, bananas, apples and pears tend to change color. To prevent this from happening, simply squeeze a generous amount over the fruit salad bowl. Toss it together to coat the fruits. It is ok to use either fresh or store bought lemons.
Will vinegar keep fruit from turning brown?
Using something acidic like vinegar on your fruit salad recipe will work but the resulting flavor wouldn&rsquot be great. It is best to use lemons instead. Honey is usually another great and sweet way to keep your fruits from turning brown. I used honey for this fruit salad recipe even though none of the fruits used will turn brown.

Tips on how to make berry cheesecake Fruit salad:
This Berry Cheesecake Fruit Salad, is extremely easy to make, however, we do have a few tips for you, when making it. Here they are:
- Your cream cheese will work best when it is nice and fluffy. In order to get this desired fluffy texture, you may need to leave your cream cheese out for a little bit, to get it to room temperature.When mixing it, be sure to not add any other ingredients to it. Let the hand mixer beat the cream cheese to a smooth and fluffy texture, before adding any other ingredients.If you don’t it may create cream cheese bumps in your salad.
- Other pudding’s won’t work. It needs to be the instant vanilla packet, when making this recipe.
- We also recommend adding the milk little by little, just to get that desired texture. Sometimes when you put ingredients in all at once, it can lead to lumping, or a funky texture.
- If you do decide to use frozen fruit, thaw and dry them with a paper towel before adding them to the salad. If you don’t your salad will get too much moisture in it, and it will turn watery.
- As long as you follow the instructions and the ingredients list, this salad will be perfectly smooth and fluffy without any lumps or flaws.

How to Make the Best Fruit Salad
- Start with ripe, fresh fruit. When fresh berries are perfectly ripe, they are naturally sweet and juicy. I recommend buying organic berries when possible. I used strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and cherries in this recipe for the perfect combination of colors and textures.
- Wash and dry the fruit. Rinse your fruit under cold water and lay it out on a clean towel. Gently pat the fruit dry because excess moisture will cause the berries to soften more quickly.
- Cut into bite-size pieces. Ideally, you want to get the flavors of different fruits in each bite of this berry salad. Leave the blueberries, raspberries and blackberries whole. Cut the strawberries into smaller pieces. You can halve the cherries or leave them whole, after removing the cherry pits. This cherry pitter makes it easy to remove the cherry pits.
- Drizzle on a fruit salad dressing. When you make this berry salad with fruit that is perfectly ripe, you honestly don’t need much for a sweetener or dressing. But a light drizzle of honey lime dressing makes fresh fruit salad even better.
- To prepare wheat berries: Sort through berries carefully, discarding any stones. Rinse well under cool running water. Place in large heavy saucepan. Add water and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat, cover and simmer gently, stirring occasionally for 1 hour. Drain and rinse. Let cool to room temperature. (Makes about 4 1/2 cups.)
- To prepare salad: Combine orange juice & cranberries in small bowl. Let stand 15 minutes.
- Combine 3 cups cooked wheat berries, apple and pecans in large bowl stir gently. Drain cranberries, reserving juice. Stir cranberries in wheat berry mixture.
- Whisk reserved orange juice, vinegar and oil in small bowl until combined. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Pour over salad and stir gently to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to combine. Serve cold or at room temperature.

How To Make Fruit Salad with Berries
- Prep the Berries: Start by slicing up all of your fruit and pitting your cherries, removing any rotten or sad looking berries along the way.
- Chop the Mint: Wash and chop your mint as finely or roughly as you like. Then, add the prepped fruit and fresh mint to a large bowl.
- Make the Dressing: In a separate small bowl, whisk the honey and lime juice until incorporated. Add the lime and honey mixture to the fruit, and gently toss to combine.
- Serve: Garnish with more chopped mint, a light drizzle of honey, and/or some lime zest, and serve immediately or refrigerate until chow time. Enjoy!
