Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups wheat berries  soaked overnight

  • 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.

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.
