Soak the wheat berries in 2 inches of water for 1 hour. Drain and place in cooking bowl of Cuisinart® Rice Cooker/Steamer. Add water and ½ teaspoon salt. Turn on and cook until all water is absorbed and unit switches to Warm, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Spread out on a baking sheet to cool. When wheat berries are cooled, place in a medium bowl with the corn, zucchini, red pepper, green onion, and sun-dried tomatoes. Toss gently to combine. Add 4 tablespoons of the dressing (cover and refrigerate remaining dressing for another use) and the parsley; toss to combine. If not serving immediately, cover and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before serving.
*Wheat berries can be found in many well-stocked grocery stores, specialty food stores or health food stores. Wheat berries are whole unprocessed kernels of wheat. They can be cooked in cereals, pilafs and breads and add a nutty flavor. Wheat berries should be soaked prior to using to soften.
