Look for wheat berries in the health food section of most grocery stores and at bulk or health food stores. Adding the avocado increases the fat intake; if this is a concern, leave the avocado out.

Bring large saucepan of salted water to boil. Add wheat berries; cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 45 to 60 minutes or until tender. Drain and transfer to large bowl; let cool for about 15 minutes.

Add black beans, tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, onions, avocado (if using) and feta cheese; add dressing and toss to coat.

Divide lettuce and kale among plates; top with wheat berry mixture.
