  • Make the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, sugar, and celery seed. In a slow, steady stream, whisk in olive oil until completely combined. Drizzle 2 tablespoons dressing over the wheat berries.

  • Arrange celery slices over wheat berries, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing. Cover celery with cherries, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing.

  • Crumble half the blue cheese over the top of the cherries, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing.

  • In a medium bowl, toss together shredded cabbage and 3 tablespoons dressing; layer cabbage over the blue cheese. Layer carrots over cabbage, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing. Crumble the remaining blue cheese over the carrots, and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Cover the salad, and transfer to the refrigerator for 24 hours to allow the flavors to develop. Remove the salad from the refrigerator, and serve at room temperature.

HI KICKYPANTS; IF YOU USE SOMERSWEET YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE SUGAR. IT'S A WONDERFUL SUBSTITUE AND YOU CAN BUY IT ON LINE. I SURE WISH MARTHA WOULD HAVE SUZANNE SOMERS ON HER PROGRAM SOMETIME. PERHAPS SOMEONE WILL MENTION IT TO MARTHA.

Instead of white ninegar, use apple cider vinegar. This allows you to cut out someof the sugar too.
