Cracked Wheat Salad


This healthy salad is vibrantly colorful, refreshing and fatfree. It can be put together under no time and an opt one if you are looking for a light and healthy meal. This is going to be my 4th day entry to Srivalli's blogging marathon - 9th edition.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup cracked wheat
3/4 cup to 1 cup bean - veggie medley  (I used cooked black beans, corn, thinly julienned carrot, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes)
2 Tbsp roughly chopped cilantro
Salt to taste
Pepper powder / 1 - 2 minced green chillies
Lemon juice as needed

Method:
* Cook cracked wheat adding salt according to the package directions. Spread the cracked wheat in a bowl and fluff.
* Add the rest of the ingredients and toss well.


This goes to
1. "Global Food Festival" by Kalyani
2. "Soups & Salads Mela" by Srivalli.
