I recently have been reading up on the health benefits of barley and wanted to try something new. So I made this simple salad that is full of health and flavour!
4 tablespoons barley cooked
1 green apple
1 medium sized carrot
1 small red bell pepper
1 small yellow bell pepper
1 small green bell pepper
1 mid sized tomato
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
Salt, to taste
Soak the barley for half an hour and pressure cook (two whistles) with a little water. Allow the barley to cool completely.
Finely chop all the ingredients – green apple, carrot, tomato, bell peppers.
In a bowl add the drained barley, chopped vegetables, olive oil, lemon juice, mixed herbs, black pepper, salt and mix well.
The salad is ready to serve.
Do try it and let me know what you think!
