Minted Peas and Wheatberries

It all started when my friend Karla brought me fresh mint from her garden. Mint goes so well with feta, which I usually have on hand. Then, I bought spring peas at a local market known for good produce, and found this recipe which tied those ingredients together. But I was craving the crunch of wheat berries, so I used those instead of rice. I had some shrimp in the freezer, so after a quick defrost, I added them in. Finally, it needed some type of dressing, but I wanted to keep it light so I added some lemon juice. This recipe has so many different flavors and textures, I definitely enjoyed it.

1 c. fresh peas, steamed
1 c. cooked wheat berries
1/3 c. fat free feta
1/3 c. diced scallions
1/4 c. chopped fresh mint
1 c. shrimp
3 T lemon juice
Black pepper to taste
