Barley

  • Strain and set aside in the fridge.
Dressing
  • Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Plating
  • Make a bed of barley at the bottom of your dish.  
  • Alternatively place all of the other ingredients on top of the barley so as to make a nice colorful bed.
  • Drizzle the vinaigrette on top and then all you need to do is mix well when ready to eat!
