Several people have requested this recipe lately, so I thought I'd put it up here. A summertime favorite around our home.


1 cup cooked wheat berries
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1/2 chopped peeled cucumber
2 ribs chopped celery
1/2 chopped red onion
4 T tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
Fresh or dried dill to taste
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all together and enjoy!

To cook wheat berries:
Method 1: Place 1/2 c. wheat kernels in 2 c. water. Boil 10 minutes and let sit overnight. Drain.
Method 2: Place 1/2 c. wheat kernels in 3 c. water. Boil 45-60 min. Drain. Cool under running cold water.
