soaked cracked wheat
measure AFTER soaking
cooked wheat berries
measure AFTER cooking
extra virgin olive oil
fresh squeezed lemon juice
salt and freshly cracked black pepper
large bunches WELL WASHED fresh parsley
stems removed, finely minced (I pulsed it in a food processor)
small bunch of fresh mint leaves
finely diced (the kind that comes wrapped in plastic, don't peel)
medium red onion
You will need 2 cups soaked cracked wheat and 2 cups cooked wheat berries. Follow the directions on the packages. Once soaked and cooked, measure out 2 cups each and put in a large bowl.
Mix the dressing by whisking the olive oil and lemon juice together. Pour it over the wheat and toss to combine well. Season with 1/2 tsp salt and lots of fresh cracked black pepper. Toss again.
Add the minced parsley, mint, cucumber, and red onion, toss well. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Toss the salad again, and taste to adjust any of the seasonings. When you are ready to serve, top with the 'jewels'. Garnish with a few mint or parsley leaves.
