Couscous Option: Omit wheatberries. Bring 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sodium reduced vegetable broth to boil. Add 1 cup (250 mL) instant whole grain couscous. Stir and remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and gently add apples, spinach, beans and cranberries. Toss with dressing and mint as above.
Tuna or Salmon Option: Add 2 cans (170 g each) flaked white tuna in water, drained or salmon to the salad instead of the beans.
Storage: Wrap salad and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
