Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 cup wheat berries
    1 small red onion, chopped fine (about 1/4 cup)
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
    2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    1 1/2 cups cooked corn (frozen, or cut from 2 fresh ears and steamed)
    1/2 cup smoked mozzarella cheese, diced
    1 pint vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, halved
    1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Tips

You'll find wheat berries in the bulk food section of Whole Foods; substitute pearled barley or farro (an Italian grain similar in texture) if you'd like.


Directions

Serves 4.

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 is really high in fat. I would cut the cheese down to half the amount and maybe add another veggie. Going to make it this weekend! - 1/5/13

    My family liked this recipe. I used whole kernel storage wheat. I don't know if that is different from "wheat berries."
    It's tasty and would be wonderful with frest veggies from the garden. Next time I will try using pearl barley.
