This is a quick, healthy lunch from health.com.
Cook barley according to package directions, omitting salt. Drain barley in a colander, and rinse with cold water until completely cooled.
Combine black beans, next 6 ingredients, and, if desired, cilantro and red pepper in a medium bowl. Add barley to black bean mixture; toss gently.
jafkitchen 2y agoMade this into a hot dish. Added some corn, jalapeño, and extra cheese. Very good
MauraSpeckt 2y agoThis was a salad that while my husband and I were delighted with it, the kids declined to eat much of it. I guess they are not wild about barley. The flavors were spot on and the application was clever in my opinion however.
carsuesj 2y agoI loosely followed this and ended up with a really great dish. I sauted the green pepper with half an onion until tender. Then threw the black beans and barley in the pan to heat up. Didn't have any tomatoes, added a sprinkle of crushed red pepper and some chopped spinach. Will totally make this again. I loved the pepper and lemon juice combo!
hollyloveland 2y agoI thought it was pretty good. Was my first attempt at cooking barley. My fiancée thought it was really good.

Hansmarcuson 3y agoVery good recipe and side. I doubled the recipe using pinto and black beans/ red and yellow tomatoes. I will make this again. Thank you for your submission!

superstar5220 5y agoI was cleaning out the cupboards and used quinoa and kidney beans instead and it still turned out great!
srlapolla 5y agoI added a little lemon zest before I juiced it. Wow. Great, filling meal. I also added a bit of avocado before serving.
mandypta 6y agoI used medium barley instead of quick barley, but it worked out fine that way. I also did not use the red pepper flakes, but did use cilantro. Very flavorful and colorful dish! I plan to take this to my next cookout/potluck. I anticipate it being a big hit!
