6 servings

recipe name

Ingredients

 

1 cup wheat berries (wheat kernels) 250 mL
1/2 cup minced red onion 125 mL
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided 50 mL
2 tbsp red wine vinegar 25 mL
1 tsp kosher salt 5 mL
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper 2 mL
1/2 cup finely diced cucumber 125 mL
2 cups halved Ontario Coronation grapes 500 mL
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped 125 mL
1/4 cup minced fresh basil 50 mL
1/4 cup crumbled feta 50 mL

Directions

Cook wheat berries in a large pot of boiling, salted water (uncovered) until they are soft, about 20 minutes. Drain in sieve.

In skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium high-heat. Add red onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour in remaining oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add warm wheat berries, red pepper, cucumber, grapes and basil and toss to combine. Transfer to a bowl and let salad rest for at least 30 minutes, tossing occasionally so the wheat can absorb the dressing.

Sprinkle with feta and serve at room temperature.
