Method

Put olives and reserved 2 tablespoons brine, shallots, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and zest into a small glass bowl.

Pour enough oil over olives just to cover, cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Put wheat berries into a medium bowl, cover with water and set aside to let soak overnight; drain.

Bring 5 cups water and salt to a boil in a medium pot.

Add drained wheat berries and return to a boil.

Reduce heat to a simmer, add bay leaf and cover.

Cook, stirring occasionally, for 55 to 65 minutes, or until tender but still chewy, adding more water if needed; drain well and discard bay leaf.

Meanwhile, transfer gouda and marinated olives to a large bowl and set aside to let come to room temperature.

When cooked, add drained wheat berries, walnuts, parsley and remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice to bowl, mix well and serve.
