What's in this Whole Foods prepared grain salad?

Can you help me recreate this cranberry, pecan, and grain salad from the Whole Foods salad bar? I don't need an exact formula, just help figuring out what's in it. Sad, I know but I'm going crazy missing it!

I used to eat this stuff almost every day when I worked right by the Whole Foods in Westwood in LA. And later on it was the only thing i wanted when i had bad morning sickness. I'd say they had it at LA area WF two out of every three times I looked for it from 2010-2011, no idea if they still do. It lives or lived in the prepared, by the ounce, scoop your own section.
It's a dryish grain based salad but I'm not sure what grain - wheat berries? Wild rice? I don't know much about the more unusual grains. I'm pretty sure it has finely chopped salad onions and it definitely has pecan pieces and cranberries. No greens.
Do you know this salad? Can you help me piece together my own? I just moved to London and I can't stop thinking about it. Thanks!
