Salsa Salad

Submitted by: ALIRA54

Introduction

This is an easy combo of frozen corn, black beans, wheat berries and salsa. The wheat berries add a delicious chewy texture and whole train health benefits.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 cups cooked corn kernels (fresh, canned or frozen)
    1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
    1 cup cooked wheat berries
    1/2 cup salsa

Directions

Put about half a cup of raw wheat berries in a small cooking pot. Rinse well, cover with water, bring to a boil, and simmer 45-60 minutes until tender, making sure that the berries do not boil dry. (You can cook more wheat berries than that and add them to other dishes, but you only need 1 cup for this recipe.)

While the wheat berries are booking, combine the corn, beans, and salsa in a bowl. Stir periodically to allow flavors to begin to blend.

When the wheat berries are tender, drain any excess water in a colander, measure out 1 cup, and combine with the rest of the ingredients.

Makes 8 1/2 cup servings. It tastes even better the second day when the flavors have had a chance to blend.

    Glad you like it. Check out my Moroccan vegetable stew. It's more work, but well worth it.
