Tangy Kale Wheat Berry Salad

If you love tabbouleh, you’ll love this salad. Tomatoes, cucumber, kale, capers, wheat berries, lemon juice, olive oil, and a blend of spices. It’s easy, hearty and delicious. Loaded with fiber and vitamins, it’s also healthy!

For a variation, add some chickpeas. It’s plenty hearty, but chickpeas would add some additional protein. This salad is perfect as a side, a meal or a lunch!
