This was a good recipe. I halved it because I knew my daughter would not eat wheat berries & then ended up substituting spelt as I was out of wheat berries. It was very tasty. I couldn't find roasted kalamata olives so I used regular brined ones. Preparing the artichokes was time consuming. Maybe baking some frozen artichoke hearts till they were browned would be easier next time.
Thistles off to Tiffany Vickers for the fabulous light and nutty Wheat Berry Salad recipe! A delicious and healthy medely of savory Mediterranean flavors. Yes, the recipe does take a bit of time to prepare...but well worth the wait! This would be a wonderful alternative dish to bring to a summer picnic or party occasion.
My family loved this recipe... even my 6 year old. I used bulgar because it cooks in 12-15 minutes instead of wheat berries and jarred arthichokes (in water not oil) instead of taking the time to cook the artichokes. We do not care for rosemary so we left it out. And we used 3 oz of prosciutto instead of 1oz. It was delicious!
I liked this recipe a lot. It was something different. It's a bit time-consuming with the 8 hr. soaking and then the 1 hr cooking of wheat berries and the 30 min baking of the artichokes. I enjoyed the texture of the berries and the taste of the roasted artichokes. I didn't have prosciutto so I substituted one strip of bacon. If you have the time, it's a tasty recipe.
