Instructions

  1. Cook wheat berries in 4¾ cups of water with ¾ teaspoon of salt for 45 minutes. If you’ve soaked the wheat berries overnight, cook for 30 to 35 minutes. Mix in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Transfer to a large serving dish to cool.
  2. Place the tomatoes in a colander, season with ½ teaspoon of salt. Let rest for 15 minute to allow the tomatoes to release their water. Squeeze the tomatoes and add to the wheat berries.

  4. Toss in the capers and chives. Stir until all of the ingredients are mixed well.
