Wheat Berry Vegetable Salad



  • 1.

    Bring wheat berries to a boil in salted water and simmer for 1 hour. Alternately, wheat berries can be soaked in cold water overnight, then cooked for 30 to 40 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse to cool.

  • 2.

    In a sauté pan over medium heat, add oil and leeks and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini and red pepper and sauté 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in peas, oregano and lemon zest. Once vegetables and wheat berries are cooled, combine together. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste.

  • 3.

    Chill until ready to serve.
