Barley & Bean Salad

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

This salad has become one of my favorites. It's super healthy, good for the body and filled with great protein.

The ingredient that makes the difference is definetely the lemon juice, adds great flavor to the dish. Also, don't be afraid of switching some of the ingredients, you can try quinoa instead of barley and add your favorite bean instead of red kidney beans.

Happy Cooking!
