I love the nutty flavor that wheat berries have. If you haven’t tried them yet, you really should. They are delicious! I also have a Wheat Berry Salad With Cranberries on the blog. Since it’s summertime, I am still on my cold salad kick. My husband and I came up with this meal from scraps we had in the fridge. It turned out to be really good! We used some of our organic and non GMO corn we had stashed in the freezer.
Sometimes when you clean out the fridge, you get the best meals. This came out so good, we made a second batch the following day. If you have a gluten allergy, you can replace the wheat berries with quinoa and this will be equally delicious!
Wheat Berry Salad With Cranberries
Wheat Berry Salad with Corn and Peppers
- 2 cups cooked wheat berries
- 1/4 cup chopped chives
- 1 cup corn (please try to buy this organic)
- 1/2 red pepper chopped
- 1/2 yellow pepper chopped
- 2 avocados pitted and chopped
- 2-3 T apple cider vinegar
- 1 T toasted sesame oil
- salt to taste
- Throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
To make this even better, let it sit in the fridge for a few hours so the flavors can develop further. It’s even better the next day! This made 4-5 servings. Enjoy!
