Salads can be very boring. In fact sometimes I find that I stop eating them because they’re not appealing. I know it’s surprising to hear that from a dietitian! Well the other night, my husband requested salad and I came up with a winning combination that left both our taste buds and tummies satisfied!
- Yellow Bell Peppers
- Wheat berries
I dressed my salad after I took the photograph. I used a little bit of Annie’s Goddess dressing thinned out with balsamic vinegar. I absolutely love this salad dressing but be careful because it’s quite calorically dense at 120 calories per serving. A little goes a long way!
Have you ever had wheat berries before? I bought hard red winter wheat berries from my local supermarket (Fairway) and simmered them in water for about 1 hour until they had the right chewiness texture to them. They are so delicious!
