As you might know by now, I’m no chef. Not even close. But on occasion, I do like to try and whip something up. This week, I broke down and decided I was actually going to try to make a wheat berry salad. After numerous points of inspiration from an old high school acquaintance’s blog, Adrienneats, I did it. I finally did it!

First thing you may notice is that a lot of her recipes have more than 5 ingredients. A big no-no in my kitchen. So I modified and made sure to include ingredients I knew I had as well as the few that I knew I loved. Since I was modifying, I figured measurements weren’t overly important since I would be keeping to basic. So what did I do?

I soaked my wheat berries over night and then cooked for an hour. YES, an hour! Then, I sauteed my onion, adding brussel sprouts, red cabbage (for color), and garlic as I went – pretty much equal parts, except the garlic of course. Then, I threw it all together. For dressing, I simply combined salt, pepper, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar. Finally, I topped it off with bleu cheese crumbles.

Man, oh man was it delicious!

I don’t really know calorie count on this recipe, but I imagine this can’t be too bad for you. That’s pretty much all fresh veg, wheat berry, and a near calorie-free dressing. The only thing I know isn’t the best for you is the cheese, but if used in moderation, you won’t be tipping the scales. Or you could even choose to leave it off.
