Chimichurri is an Argentinian tangy herb sauce that is traditionally served as a condiment for grilled meats. The zesty combination of parsley, cilantro, garlic and hot pepper livens up the earthy flavor of wheat berries, while the crisp cucumbers, juicy sweet corn and cherry tomatoes create a refreshing, light meal. You can substitute wheat berries with spelt berries, wild rice or Israeli couscous.
