Summer Wheatberry Salad

This salad is healthy, hearty, and absolutely delicious. It gets better as it sits, so I try to make it the day before I serve it. Stores well. Makes a nice light summer meal, or a different accompaniment to BBQ, or maybe roasted meats. It also makes a great part of an all-vegetarian meal.
