When I was growing up my mom made delicious meals on a regular basis. The one meal I was not really a fan of was tuna casserole. I don't really remember her making it often but I just know I didn't like it. Tuna is on my short list of items I do not like to eat. So, when this recipe called for wheat berries (which I had never heard of) and tuna I was not sure I was going to like it. An easy fix was to switch out the tuna for chicken and it worked just fine.
My next issue with this came in wondering where the heck I was going to get wheat berries. I googled and saw you could get them for about $10 a bag. I had a thought though and called Whole Foods. It is a drive to get there but I was able to get a pound of wheat berries for $1.99 in the bulk section!! I also picked up the cherries for next week's recipe as well. I have to say, Whole Foods is expensive but I am a fan of the bulk section!
informative article about wheat berries here) the most time consuming part of making this dish was slicing the avocado.
My sweet mother in law was here this week and she was game to try out any of the crazy things I was making. I even thought about making the swordfish recipe for later this month but she did say she wasn't a big fan of swordfish. I put that one on the back burner for another day. She likes avocados and tomatoes so I plated this salad for her. Mine was lacking tomatoes and my hubs was missing avocado. I put the wheatberries on a sandwich for Little Man and Munchkin had everything but tomatoes as well.
Doristas who made this recipe this week! :) Next week Whole Cherry Clafoutis.
