4 C water
1/2 C dry wheat berries
1 15-oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 C frozen, shelled edamame, thawed
1 C chopped tomato
1/2 C finely chopped onion, preferably sweet onion like vidalia
Dressing: 3 T extra virgin olive oil
2 T red wine vinegar
(For a sweeter dressing, I have substituted white balsamic vinegar or rice vinegar. I think lemon juice will also work nicely)
salt and pepper to taste
1) Combine water and wheat berries in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 55 min or until berries are tender. (It will always be firm and chewy)
2) Drain and allow to cool or rinse with cold water and drain.
3) Combine with remaining ingredients.
4) Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours.
