Wheat Berry Tabouleh

Wheat Berry Tabouleh
Originally uploaded by kel h

I got wheat berries in my CSA share a while ago, and some parsley a week ago. (mis)adventures in food wrote about her hodgepodge salad, which gave me the idea to do this:

1 bunch parsley, stems discarded
1 bunch mint, stems discarded
1 tomato diced
1 cup cooked wheat berries
Juice 1 lemon
3-4 tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper and cyanne pepper to taste

Gather the herbs together and thinly slice them (the fancy term is chiffonade, at least with basil)
in a bowl combine the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and cyanne (I used a pinch. traditionally you use alleppo, but i don't have any). whisk to make a dressing

toss the chopped herbs, tomato, wheat berries and dressing in a bowl and serve

If you want to make it more traditional, you can sub the wheat berries with bulger.
