Mango Barley Salad Recipe

Ingredients :
1-3/4 cups water
1 cup quick-cooking barley
2 medium limes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

How To Make :
In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in barley. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until barley is tender, 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
Finely grate enough zest from limes to measure 1 teaspoon. Cut limes crosswise in half; squeeze juice from limes. In a small bowl, whisk lime juice, lime zest, oil, mustard, honey, salt, cumin and pepper until blended.
In a large bowl, combine barley, peppers, onion, mango and cilantro. Add dressing; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.

Test Kitchen tips :
Fresh pineapple or papaya can also be added, or used to replace the mango.
Just because we call for barley doesn't mean you can't try this made with quinoa, farro or other grains. It's all going to be delicious!
