Invoke the flavors of the Mediterranean with this fresh, tasty and hearty salad. 

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups wheat berries, soaked overnight
  • 1 ½ cups seeded, chopped tomato
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/3 cup light balsamic dressing (such as Newman’s Own)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint

Instructions

Drain and rinse wheat berries. Place in a medium sized saucepan and cover with several inches of water. Add ½ teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Simmer wheat berries (partially covered) for 1 hour or until tender. Drain completely. Combine with remaining ingredients and serve warm, room temperature, or chilled.

Notes

Feel free to use other light vinaigrettes you have on hand for a slight flavor variation. And if mint isn’t your thing, basil would be a fine substitute.
