Method

Place wheat berries in a large bowl and add enough water to cover by 2 1/2 to 3 inches. Transfer to a refrigerator and let soak overnight.

Drain wheat berries and transfer to a medium pot with enough water to cover by 3 inches. Add bay leaf and 2 tablespoons salt. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil; immediately reduce to a simmer. Cook until wheat berries are al dente, 45 to 60 minutes. Drain and set aside until cooled to room temperature.

Place wheat berries in a large bowl along with almonds, feta, raisins, PEPPADEW® peppers, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, mint, parsley, and cilantro; stir to combine. Serve immediately.
