  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine wheat berries, lentil/kale mix, and escarole.
  4. In a smaller bowl, whisk together oil, lavender, orange juice, rice vinegar, and pepper.
  5. In 10 bowls, add base of grains, lentils, and vegetables. Garnish with sweet potato, pumpkin seeds, 2 oz (60 g) of crispy pork lardon, and drizzle with 1 oz (28 mL) of dressing.
