Summer Wheatberry Salad


Wheatberries have a delicious nutty flavor. Look for ones labeled “soft,” which will cook more quickly than the hard variety.

What you will need

1 cup soft wheatberries  

6 cups water (or vegetable or chicken stock) with 1/2 tsp. salt

1 bay leaf 

1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts

1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup diced roasted red bell pepper

2 Tbs. capers, drained and chopped 

3 Tbs. sliced scallion (white and green parts)

1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

2 Tbs. chopped fresh basil or cilantro

1/2 to 1 tsp. finely minced garlic

2 Tbs. fresh lime juice

1 Tbs. white-wine vinegar 

1/4 cup fruity olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Young greens such as arugula, red mustard, cress, mizuna, or a mix
