Strawberry takes center stage in this fresh, bright, beautiful salad, which features an easy vinaigrette to tie it together. Frisée is a curly-edge salad green that you may see labeled as curly endive. If you don’t find it in your grocery store, pick up a bag of mixed salad greens—frisée may be part of the mix. Note that this recipe calls for cooked and cooled wheat berries, so be sure to have them ready to go.
