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 ;-)



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.

  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 lbs. ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 5 cups)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. plus 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 2 tsp. chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1 cup ice water
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice, or to taste
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt


To prepare soup:

Toast cumin in a small skillet over low heat, stirring, until just fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

Combine tomatoes, onion, 2 tablespoons cilantro, and chipotle in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the toasted cumin, corn, ice water, lime juice, and salt; stir to combine. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour or until ready to serve.


To prepare cilantro yogurt:

Puree yogurt and the remaining 1/4 cup cilantro in a blender or food processor until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve (it will thicken slightly as it stands).

To serve, divide the soup among 4 bowls and garnish each with a generous swirl of cilantro yogurt.

I just recently found my love for cilantro. I put it in almost everything. What are some of your easy recipes with cilantro? I chop some onion, jalepeno pepper, tomatoes, avocados, and squeeze some lemon on it. So delicious!

Asian Beef Salad with Cilantro, Scallions and Sesame Seeds

1 tablespoon sesame seeds
4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
2 cups cooked shredded beef
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Salt and pepper

Place sesame seeds in a small skillet and set pan over medium-low heat.
Cook 1 to 3 minutes, until just golden brown, shaking the pan frequently to prevent burning. Remove
from heat and set aside.
Place lettuce in a large bowl (or divide onto individual dishes). Top lettuce with beef, carrots,
scallions and cilantro.

In a small bowl, whisk together broth, vinegar and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper, to
taste. Pour mixture over salad, and top with toasted sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

My kids laugh at me because I love cilantro so much. I would put it in everything if I could.


Any Mexican or Asian dish tastes great with it. Just had to post to let you know that you have a soul sister out here. :-)

A green salad doesn't taste the same for me without cilantro. I add it into anything Asian or Mexican. I make my own salsa often (fresh, not cooked) and my hubby who doesn't normally like cilantro always seems to want more. I didn't like it for the longest time cuz' my Dad told me it tasted like soap. It wasn't till 1990's or so when I went to the local taqueria that I fell in love with it! I love it in my homemade hummus.

Trader Joe's sells a Jalapeno/Cilantro one that gave me the idea. Mmm, makes me wanna make some tonight! I add some last minute to my top ramen (don't eat much but when I do) with some chili oil or hot sauce. Chop up real fine and add with lime juice and hot sauce to Mexican wagon wheels (duritos, or duraditos depending on who you talk to here in Nor. Cali) yummy!

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!
