If you aren't familiar with wheat berry, it's a healthy whole-grain that pairs great with most salad ingredients. This recipe is Italian-inspired, topped with tomatoes, basil and fresh feta!

Ingredients

Salad

3 1/2
cups water
1
cup uncooked wheat berries
2
large tomatoes, chopped (2 cups)
1/4
cup chopped dry-pack sun-dried tomatoes
2
tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4
cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (1 oz)
Fresh basil sprigs, if desired

Dressing

1
tablespoon olive oil
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
1
teaspoon finely chopped shallot
1/4
teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat water and wheat berries to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 60 to 70 minutes or until wheat berries are tender but still chewy. Drain.
