Balsamic Wheat & Chicken Salad

We had this for dinner and MaMa said it was super easy to make and really tastey. She says she's looking forward to the leftoevers for lunch today! The recipe is pretty simple as is, but there are a few short cuts you can take to make it even easier...we'll share them after we share the recipe.


2 1/2 c Joseph's Grainery Soft White Wheat, cooked
1/4 c minced onion
1/4 c diced red pepper
1 boneless chicken breast, cooked or grilled
4 1/2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegarett Salad Dressing

Directions: Mix together ingredients. Chill and pour dressing over salad just before serving.

Short cuts:
1. Cook the wheat ahead of time, freeze it and then just pull it out of the freezer a few hours before you want to make the salad.
2. Use pre-cooked chicken breast meat, either that you've cooked up ahead of time or the packaged kind at the grocery store.

There are sometimes when you just don't have enough time, a few of these short cuts might come in handy...say, you've forgotten that you need to take a salad to someone's house. Chances are you have most of these ingredients in your fridge, freezer or pantry and this salad would fit the bill!
