Cranberry Nut Barley Salad

Dinner was light tonight to counter some heavier meals the past couple days. I made vegetarian spring rolls and tried out a new salad recipe. It turned out pretty good, actually, enough to move it into our menu rotation.


2 cups cooked barley
2 cups chopped parsley
1 cup walnuts, roasted and chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
4 green onions, thinly sliced

For dressing:
6 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp fresh orange juice
4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp orange zest
1 tbsp lemon zest
Salt and pepper

1. Mix all the salad ingredients.
2. Whisk together dressing ingredients.
3. Toss salad with dressing. Season to taste.
4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

NOTE: Serves 4. The original recipe used half the dressing, but we found after refrigerating (and it's much better cold than hot) that the barley had absorbed too much of the dressing to really taste it so I added more.
