I did a similar salad to this a few months ago, but it's really just a template, the possibilities are endless. It's a great balance of protein, carbs and vegetables to keep you feeling good but not over-stuffed. It's also excellent on a 95 degree day when you can't stand to be in the kitchen. So is homemade ice cream, but that's tomorrow's post.
Wheat Berry and White Bean Salad
1 cup cooked wheat berries, prepared according to package directions (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup white beans
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 pint grape tomatoes, chopped
red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
goat cheese or feta, optional
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, garnish with chopped parsley and goat cheese. Chill or serve immediately.
