Ingredients (Serves 6 to 8):
  • 1 cup raw organic hulled barley
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

    Cooking Instructions:

    • Combine barley and water in a medium sized saucepan and place over high heat, bring to a boil.
    • Once barley begins to boil, turn heat down to low and allow to simmer until done, about 40 minutes.
    • When the barley is done, toss the vegetables with the barley in a large serving bowl.
    • In a separate bowl, mix the vinegar, garlic, oil and mustard in a bowl and pour over the barley and vegetables.
    • Add sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste along with the herbs and toss again until everything is combined.
    • This salad can be served at room temperature or chilled. The leftovers taste even better!
