I was feeling extra “earthy-granola” one day when I went grocery shopping so I came home with a shit-ton of wheat berries. A year later and they were still sitting here like, “Hey dumbass, you should really make something with this 4-pound bag of bird seed you bought.”
So I did. And I have to say, I rocked it. I made the most delicious mushroom soup (which got eaten so fast I didn’t get a picture), and an even better cold salad. We didn’t eat ALL of it (but only because there are consequences for eating that many garbanzo beans), so I was able to get a picture.
I just kinda threw a bunch of shit together and, not thinking it would be anything special, didn’t write it down. Well, wouldn’t you know it, I created a frickin’ masterpiece. So I scrambled to write down what I could remember before I got distracted (SQUIRREL). Here goes….
Wheat Berry Cucumber Salad
1 cup cooked wheat berries
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 medium cucumber, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Throw it all in a bowl and stir. You can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days, but it won’t last that long.
