  • 5.Add carrots and a pinch of salt and cook until just softened but still retains some bite, about 5 minutes more.
  • 6.Stir in thyme and chipotle and sauce and cook until fragrant then remove from heat.
  • 7.Place wheat berries in a large, nonreactive bowl and add carrot mixture, nuts, and raisins.
  • 8.Whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, vinegar, and honey until honey is dissolved then stir into wheat berry mixture.
  • 9.Let salad marinate at least 15 minutes before serving or cover and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 24 hours.
  • 10.Just before serving, add the scallions and herbs.
