A hearty salad made with wheat berries, this is a fantastic pot-luck contribution.

Bring a pan of water to a boil; add 1 tsp. salt and stir in wheat berries. Return to a boil, then reduce heat slightly and cook until the wheat berries are al dente (like pasta), about 40 to 50 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.

In a small bowl, stir together red onion, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt.

In a serving bowl, combine wheat berries, corn, tomato and smoked mozzarella. Add dressing to taste. Add fresh herbs and toss gently to combine.

    It calculates at over 1100 calories because that's for the entire recipe. You have to decide how many servings you want it to make then do a makeover to get the nutritional facts... - 10/9/12

    It would more helpful if "servings" were measured in terms of cups rather than the whole recipe. - 2/2/11

  • (FYI, your nutritional information is for ONE SERVING. You'll need to divide the numbers by 4 or 6, depending on serving size.) - 9/7/14

  • It is wonderful! However, I personally think the cheese is unnecessary, so have left it out after the first batch. - 1/5/14
