Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Wheat Berry Salad

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Wheat Berry Salad

Here's one of my favorite salads to make when the weather turns hot and humid: Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Wheat Berry Salad. Super simple and delicious, refreshing, and filling.

Here's a suggestion, though. Because the wheat berries take a little time to cook, make extra and store them in the refrigerator. Use them as a side dish for dinner… or to make more salad!

Ingredients

For the dressing

  • 1 Tablespoon coarse ground mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon stone-ground honey mustard
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup

For the salad

  • 4 Cups water
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup wheat berries
  • 1 large avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • 1 Pound mini heirloom tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Cup chopped parsley

Directions

For the dressing

Put all of the ingredients in a glass jar and shake. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

For the salad

Bring the water to a boil in a soup pot. Add salt and wheat berries, reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook until the wheat is tender and slightly al dente, about 1-1 ½ hours.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked wheat berries, avocado, tomatoes, and parsley. Add salad dressing to taste and carefully toss together.
