Based on a recipe from vegan friend Bella. One cup of raw pearl barley produces four cups of cooked. The barley is sometimes called pearled barley.
- Wash the barley under cold water. Bring the 3 cups water to the boil and add the barley, oil and salt to taste. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, until tender. Remove from the heat, cover and stand for 10 minutes. Drain, if necessary. Cool.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the ingredients for the dressing and add salt to taste. Add the barley and salad ingredients. Mix carefully.
