Lemony Vegetable Barley Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

Lots of fresh vegetables, fiber-rich barley, and a flavorful dressing make this healthy salad great for a summer supper. Recipe is from Light and Tasty’s June/July 2005 issue: I intend to try it sometime soon! Cook time does not include cooking and cooling barley.
