Two different types of peas, along with radishes and a dill vinaigrette, give this salad a fresh spring flavor. Vary the mix of peas as you wish; maybe you like snow peas better than sugar snaps? And if you’re really feeling frisky, add some pea shoots!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ pound sugar snap peas or snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 cup wheat berries, hard winter or soft wheat berries
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 radishes, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh dill

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Remove strings from sugar snap peas. Cut each snap pea or snow pea pod diagonally into thirds.
  2. 2 Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add wheat berries, reduce heat to medium, and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender but still chewy, about 1 hour. Stir in sugar snaps and frozen peas and cook 1 minute. Drain wheat berry mixture in a large colander and rinse under cold water. Drain well. Transfer wheat berry mixture to a large bowl and let cool, about 30 minutes. Stir in green onions and radishes.
  3. 3 Whisk together lemon juice, mustard, salt, and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in oil. Pour dressing over salad and toss well. Add dill and toss to combine.

  1. Made per recipe, though I had no previous experience cutting up green onions or dill and was not sure how to measure dill. It looked good, had a crisp texture and fresh taste, though I may have over-done the dill. I believe that I prefer the fruit-based wheat berry salads I have made over this.
  2. This is quite filling and tasty! I made it just as the recipe said, except that I cooked everything longer to make it softer (I have trouble chewing). It might be better with more salt and mustard, but then I like strong flavor.
  3. Delicious!
  4. I also added black eye beans in the boiling water with wheat.
