Some time ago I made a wheat salad with eggplant, tomatoes and black olives that I liked a lot, made with raw tomatoes and fresh eggplant roasted in a pan ... a really easy and pleasant way to use eggplant!
This time, though, I wanted something with a little more full-bodied taste, and mulling over what I had in the fridge and pantry (no eggplant!) I imagined this combination, this time based on grilled tomatoes and caramelized onions...

First I cooked the wheat according to the package instructions (boiling in salted water), then drained it and set it aside to drain and cool a little.
I sliced the onions in thin, almost translucent pieces, added them to a pan with some oil, and cooked them until they were brown and caramelized, stirring all the time to stop them from sticking to the pan or burning

While keeping an eye on the onions, I also warmed up a cast iron grill pan, brushed it with oil, and placed the halved cherry tomatoes on it, turning them from time to time till they were cooked and showing grill marks on both sides:

When onions and tomatoes are done, I can assemble the dish:

In a bowl go the drained and still warm wheat, the onions (stir everything together), then a can of tuna (I used the kind with water, not oil, as the onions were oily enough for the whole dish) - more stirring - some chopped black olives, and finally the tomatoes (I don't want to crush tem with excessive stirring)... check for salt & pepper, adjust if needed, and serve!

More pics on my blog, if you can stand the google translate button... (actually, I am laughing sooooo much when I read on the translated bit, trying to figure out what I wrote in my language and how on earth it became what appears on the page, LOL)

this looks so delicious - I'm going to give it a go when I finish all the stuff in my fridge and go grocery shopping again. Your orange chicken also looks so good!
