Chimichurri is a flavorful, tangy herb sauce that originated in Argentina. It’s traditionally served as a condiment for grilled meats, but its punchy flavors are fantastic on just about anything. Since one of the dominant ingredients is red wine vinegar, you can use it as a dressing, making it perfect for a summery salad like this one. Here, the zesty combination of parsley, cilantro, garlic and hot pepper livens up the earthy flavor and texture of wheat berries. The addition of crisp cucumbers, juicy sweet corn kernels and cherry tomatoes creates a refreshing, light meal. If you like, you could choose another large grain in place of the wheat berries, like spelt berries, wild rice or Israeli couscous. Read more

Wheat berries might sound exotic, but you’ve had them before, most likely in their ground form — aka whole-wheat flour. A wheat berry is the entire wheat kernel before it’s been processed into bread, cereal or pasta. Since wheat berries are unprocessed (they contain the bran, germ and endosperm of the wheat kernel), they’re loaded with nutrients, including fiber, protein and B vitamins. Chewy and nutty, they make a great addition to salads, side dishes and more. Try them in these delicious dishes. Read more

Sure, we love digging into brown rice bowls and plumping up our vegetable soups with barley, but there’s an array of other (sometimes obscure) good-for-us whole grains — from spelt to farro — we should be eating on the regular. Don’t overlook these nutritious alternatives hiding in grocery store bulk bins.

- The ultimate fall salad.
I’m an apple-a-day kind of girl: I just can’t get enough of that sweet, crunchy, sometimes tart snack that comes in a myriad of different varieties. Apples are portable, satisfying, pair wonderfully with peanut butter, and travel well (I always have one in my carry-on). But sometimes I’m looking for another way to enjoy my apples, which brought me to create this sweet, savory, chewy and crunchy wheat berry salad.
