    Wheat berries are surprisingly sweet chewy sources of fiber, protein, B vitamins, folate, zinc, iron, and magnesium, as well as phytochemicals! This is a wholesome salad! Adapted from Prevention magazine(2005)

      A little time consuming, but tastes great. I have never boiled wheat berries before and I love the chewy texture. I used 1 vidalia, cut into wedges (but would slice into rings next time), sweet yellow peppers, 1 tsp dried parsley, 1/4 tsp dried oregano and 1 large clove garlic. Since this wasn't for company, I cut all the veggies up and mixed in. I would reduce the vinegar next time, since I'm not a big fan of it. I didn't use eggplant though. Good thing, since the veggies just barely fit on one cookie sheet! :)
