Corn and Wheat Berry Salad


I made this great salad today taking a recipe from Raising the Salad Bar by Catherine Walters and tweaking it a little. I added some browned onions to give it a little savory bite and ground coriander to give it another dimension. Plus some fresh herbs from my garden and I think it's perfect! Enjoy.

Corn and Wheat Berry Salad

10 ears of fresh corn
1 cup wheat berries
1 red onion chopped

1 tbls fresh parsley chopped
1 tbls fresh lemon thyme chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
Zest and Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground cumin
Salt and pepper

Shuck the corn place it in a large pot and cover it with water. Boil the corn until done about 5-10 mins. Remove the corn from the water and boil the wheat berries in the water until done about 30 mins. Remove the corn kernels from the cob and place in a bowl with the cooked and drained wheat berries.
Heat olive oil in the large pot and cook the onions on low until brown and sweet about 20 mins. Mix the onions, herbs, zest and juice of the lime, coriander, cumin and season with salt and pepper. Mixed well and serve either cold or warm.

Serves 4-6
