Wheatberry Salad

Wheatberries are a whole grain that also has protein. This is a great option for vegetarians or a meatless meal. The wheatberries can be eaten hot as a meal or cold as a salad. You can add salt to the cooking water and mix with sauteed vegetables for a savory side dish. Or you can add fruit or fruit dressings for a light salad. I like to take the leftovers of this salad and eat it with yogurt.
