I know I promised more on the pantry principle. But life gets in the way! How about a recipe that I invented this weekend in the meantime? Yummy and healthy.

Italian Wheatberry and Orzo Salad
1 cup cooked wheat berries
1/2 cup dry orzo pasta, cooked al dente and drained
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
2 oz dry Italian salami, (diced in 1/4 inch dice if a chunk or cut slices in quarters)
1/2 of a red bell pepper, diced in 1/2 inch dice
2 tbsp finely minced red onion
1/4 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
salt and pepper

Whisk together vinegar and oil in a medium bowl. Add other ingredients and toss together. Season to taste. Chill.
