Wheatberry Salad

'Tis not a year or two shows us a man:
They are all but stomachs, and we all but food;

They eat us hungerly, and when they are full,

They belch us.

-- Emilia, Othello III.iv

On Thursday, we took our picnic baskets to Boston Common for the Commonwealth Shakespeare production of Othello. (It's great, and it runs through August 15. Go!)

Some thought Seth Gilliam stole the show, but my vote might be for this simple wheatberry salad. We boiled the wheatberries for an hour or so, drained them, and added farm share cucumbers and basil, grape tomatoes, red onion, frozen peas, and crumbled feta. Dressing was olive oil, rice vinegar, Tony Chachere's, and salt and pepper.
