Warm Winter Salad

Warm Winter Salad

Posted 2014-07-10 by Lucy follow
I have used whole barley grains to make this hearty winter salad. It can be served on it's own for a healthy lunch treat, or as a side dish to accompany your main meal.



Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 60 minutes
Makes: Approximately 4 servings

Ingredients

1 cup whole barley grains
50 grams unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove
350 grams mushrooms
1/2 cup freshly chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped mint leaves
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 cup rocket leaves
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt/pepper garnish

Ingredients for


Method

  • Bring two cups of water to boil in a saucepan, and add the whole barley grains. Simmer for 55 minutes, so that the water soaks into the grains and makes them very soft and chewy. Drain away any excess liquid and set the warm grains aside for a moment.

  • Grilled mushrooms


  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the whole mushrooms and finely chopped garlic. Fry for five minutes.

  • Combine all the ingredients


  • Combine the warm barley grains, grilled mushrooms, grated parmesan cheese, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, chopped parsley, mint and rocket.

  • Toss all the ingredients together so that the dressing completely coats all the barley grains. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy.
