This pretty little salad is from Bob's Red Mill. It's totally yum and pretty much the only thing healthy that I ate during our recent move into our new house. As you can see in the picture below, I added cucumbers and red peppers- neither called for in the original recipe but I didn't think the ratio of veggies to grain was right, so add more veg. You can add or take away as you wish.
Pearl Barley Salad
I cup pear barley
3 cups vegetable broth
1 can of Organic garbanzo beans
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup shredded or very thinly sliced carrots
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
2 tsp. dried mint
3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4-1/2 tsp. salt
fresh cracked pepper
I soaked my barley before cooking. To see the how and why of soaking grains see here , here and here.
Cook barley according to package directions, rinse in cool water and drain well.
In a large bowl combine all other ingredients with barley and let chill for several hours for best flavor.
