The wheat salad we suggest today is a fresh, light and healthy option which will help you cope with the hot summer days. A filling lunch which puts you in a good mood, it contains loads of ripe, red tomatoes, crispy cucumbers and all the aroma of the finest summer herbs. Do try it: serve either as a meal in itself or as a side dish to a main course of veal cutlet or a plate of cold cuts. You choose!
Cook the wheat. Wash and cut the tomatoes into segments; cut the cucumber into chunks; add the olives and capers, the coarsely chopped and washed herbs, the whole rocket leaves, and finally the warm wheat; then finish with a plentiful dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Serve warm or cold.
