Wheatberry & Edamame Salad

This delicious recipe came from Pompeian.  I made it for lunch this afternoon.  It is another one of those yummy, fresh summer salad recipes that I want to eat again and again. 

Here's what you need:

1/2 c. wheat
1 c. edamame
1 can black beans
1 tomato, diced
1/2 red onion, minced, or green onions for a milder flavor
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste

Combine wheat with 4 c. water.  Bring to a boil & simmer for about an hour- until wheat is soft & chewey.  Drain & rinse with cold water.  Combine with remaining ingredients & toss. 

This salad is SO good for you- I've listed the main nutrients in each...

Black Beans:  Protein, Folate, Thiamin (B1), Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese & Copper.

Edamame: (Soy Beans): Protein, Vitamin C, Folate, Thiamin, Calcium, Iron, Manganese, and Potassium.
