Wheat Berry, Black Bean, and Avocado Salad recipe
- 2 oz dried black beans
- ½ cup hard wheat berries
- 4 cups water1 (10-oz) container grape tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup chopped poblano chile peppers
- ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- ½ tsp salt

- Place the beans and wheat berries in a fine mesh sieve; rinse and drain. Place in the Instant Pot with the water. Seal the lid, close the valve, and set the Manual/Pressure Cook button to 25 minutes.
- Use a quick pressure release. Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, vinegar, oil, garlic, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
- When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid. Drain the beans and wheat berries in a fine mesh sieve and run under cold water to stop the cooking process and cool quickly. Drain well.
- Combine the drained bean mixture, avocado, and cheese with the tomato mixture. Toss gently until well coated and serve.
