A Summertime Salad

I know we're all in summertime salad mode. Too hot to labor in the kitchen with the over on. Plus I love making a big bowl of anything and being able to snack on it for days. And it's bbq weather and while potato salad is nice, it's always good to mix it up. This salad is pretty great. Strawberry and basil is a powerhouse combo and the sweetness of the orange juice is balanced by the salty feta. I added edamame and baby arugula because I like to up the veggie intake whenever humanly possible. And this was my first foray into wheatberries. I love love love the nutty taste but be warned these are super chewy little guys. Maybe even a little too chewy for some. But I'm a fan and I think they'd be a good base grain for any number of salad-y sensations. I'd add this one to your repertoire, my darlings.
