Chili-Lime Barley & Vegetable Salad

Chili-Lime Barley & Vegetable Salad

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

One of the advantages of a full-fat cheese is that it melts nicely; but in cold dishes (like this salad) where meltability is not an issue, you can use a lower-fat cheese with no sacrifice and the health benefits are obvious. If you prefer, substitute quick-cooking barley for the pearl.

Makes 4 servings


1½ cups pearl barley

¾ teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons vegetable oil, such as olive or canola oil

1 red bell pepper, cut into ½-inch squares

1 medium red onion, coarsely diced

3 cloves garlic, minced
