200g hard winter wheatberries
1 red onion, finely diced
6 tbsp good-quality olive oil, divided
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 spring onions, minced, white and green parts
1/2 red pepper, small diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1) Place the wheatberries and 750ml of boiling salted water in a saucepan and cook, uncovered, over low heat for approximately 45 minutes, or until berries are soft. Drain.

2) Saute the red onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-low heat until translucent, approximately 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the remaining 4 tablespoons (about 60ml) of olive oil and the balsamic vinegar.

3) In a large bowl, combine the warm wheatberries, sauteed onions, spring onions, red pepper, carrot, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Allow the salad to sit for at least 30 minutes for the wheatberries to absorb the sauce. Season, to taste, and serve at room temperature.
