Awesome Lentil-Barley Salad

Total Time

Cook 45 mins

Best ever (and yummiest) hot-weather salad if you ask me. Has grains, has protein, has plenty of taste--what more could you ask for?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, wash and rinse the barley and lentils. Fill pot with a lot of water, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and boil until cooked - 45 minutes to an hour.
  2. Drain and rinse with cool water.
  3. Transfer to a salad bowl and toss with the onions/chives.
  4. Combine all the dressing ingredients, then add to the lentil-barley-onion mixture, stirring until well combined.

I'm so sorry. We just didn't feel this had any taste at all. I added some herbs from the garden as another suggested, but it really had no flavor. I think the addition of a cucumber, a tomato, maybe some other veggies would help immensely.

Very easy to make and healthy! Adults liked this but kids weren't thrilled. I might prefer a slightly sweeter dressing.
