    • In this country it is very very rare that we eat wheat in its WHOLE form.  The kernel of the wheat is called a wheat berry and is very nutritious when cooked.  People shy away a little because of how long it takes to cook.  For this recipe below I used my Cuisinart Pressure Cooker (which I absolutely love) and it took less than an hour from start to finish.  The wheat berries freeze nicely too.

       

      3 cups cooked wheat berries (about 1 ½ cups dry white or red wheat)

      1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped

      2 roma tomatoes, chopped

      1 avocado, chopped

      1/4 dried cranberries

      Corn cut from one cob, optional

      ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

      ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

      2 TBS fresh basil, chopped

       

      Combine all of the above ingredients into a large bowl.  Prepare the salad dressing and pour over the bowl.  Mix thoroughly.

       

      Dressing

      1 clove of garlic, minced

      2 TBS balsamic vinegar

      2 TBS olive oil

      2 TBS rice vinegar

      Juice from 1 lemon – about 2 TBS

      2 TBS honey

       

      Combine all of ingredients and mix until the honey is dissolved.
      (A Vitamix works great!)
