Caprese Wheat Berry Salad

love for caprese salads + love for wheat berries= lovely caprese wheat berry salad

Look out macaroni and pasta noodles, wheat berries are coming through!

Delicious warm or cold, with 6g of protein per serving, add anything your heart desires to create a healthier version of your favorite “pasta salad”!

There are even breakfast options with wheat berries!

I present to you one of many delicious wheat berry recipes, full of fresh Italian flavors, bursting with bites of wheat, that contains very little ingredients!

(Warning: We were all out of fresh mozzarella. My hubby freaked out when he got home…but somehow, he survived. 🙂 )

Grab a bag of Wheat Berries…

Check out the great protein content!

Make the wheat berries according to the package. Recipe was doubled in this pic.

Add sea salt, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar (to taste). Approx. 2 tbsp of olive oil and vinegar and 1 tsp of sea salt.

yum.

Add in fresh basil from your new herb window box and grape ‘maters sliced in half! [Enter imaginary fresh chunks of mozzarella here.] Or…anything else that makes your heart sing.

love these colors.

normally, there would be flashes of bright white with the addition of mozzarella. however, this salad is still delicious, without it!

this salad offers a wonderful freshness with the fresh basil and tomatoes. the wheat berries give the salad a great texture; a firm, juicy burst of wheat.

enjoy for lunch, dinner, or a snack!
