Summer Salad Fun~ Barley Salad

The Perfect Summer Salad

The Perfect Summer Salad

One of my favorite salads to make is barley salad.  You want to cook the barley and let it cool before you add all the ingredients.  I use a rice cooker so it always comes out perfectly cooked.

My barley salad never comes out the same twice since I guesstimate and add whatever I have.  Some of my all-time favorites to add are: peas, chopped black olives, chopped or shredded carrots, capers, chopped celery, chopped apples, chopped scallions or finely chopped red onion, tuna fish, a dash of salt and ground pepper, mayonnaise, a dash of balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, a pinch of garlic powder and you’ve got a healthy, tasty salad.  Prepare ahead of time to let the flavors blend together and serve on a bed of lettuce.
