  4. Add the wheat berries, black beans, green peppers, onion and cilantro.
  5. Mix well to combine using a rubber spatula.
  6. Refrigerate salad for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to develop and meld. Mix again before serving.

To make the wraps:

  1. Spread ¼ c. InHarvest Southwest Chicken and Wheat Berry Salad onto the center of the tortilla.
  2. Top salad with ¼ c. chicken.
  3. Spread ½ c. romaine lettuce on top as the final layer.
  4. Fold the sides of the tortilla up to the center of the filling.
  5. Holding the sides in place, roll the tortilla up from the bottom all the way to the top.
  6. Cut wrap in half and serve or store in a tightly sealed container under refrigeration until ready to serve.
