Instructions
  1. Cook wheat berries in a large pot of boiling, salted water (uncovered) until they are soft, about 20 minutes. Drain in sieve.
  2. In skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium high-heat. Add red onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour in remaining oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add warm wheat berries, red pepper, cucumber, grapes and basil and toss to combine. Transfer to a bowl and let salad rest for at least 30 minutes, tossing occasionally so the wheat can absorb the dressing.
  4. Sprinkle with feta and serve at room temperature.
