Recipe: Barley with Lime and Cilantro Dressing

This dish tastes yummy served warm, at room temperature or cold. If you're not thrilled about cilantro, you can omit and still enjoy simple lime barley ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pearl barley
  • 6 cups water or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro, finely chopped
  • salt, to taste

Directions:

Rinse and drain barley. Place the 6 cups of water or broth in a saucepan, add the barley and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until barley is tender and water is almost absorbed, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, and salt to taste, cover and set aside for flavors to blend.

Fluff the barley, drizzle with the dressing, stir and serve.

I too absolutely love cilantro! I never knew anything about it til I married a Hispanic man and I've always said, "How did I live so many years without cilantro?" It tastes so good in a good hot sauce, or as a lot of people call it salsa. It just adds to the rich flavor!
