Barley and Mushroom Salad


  • Vinaigrette1 Tbs white wine vinegar

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 1 tsp brown mustard

  • 3 Tbs olive oil

  • salt and pepper

  • 1/2 red onion

  • olive oil

  • 2 2/3 cups vegetable broth

  • 2/3 cup pearl barley

  • 4 oz raw shiitake mushrooms, sliced

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 tsp salt

Fiber-rich barley, instead of lettuce, is the base for this salad that combines the mellow flavor of roasted red onion with hearty shiitake mushrooms.


  • For vinaigrette, whisk together vinegar, honey and mustard. Slowly add oil while whisking, until emulsified. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Peel onion half and coat with oil. Place on baking sheet and roast until tender, about 30 minutes. Chop coarsely.
  • In a medium pot, bring broth to a boil and add barley. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until barley is tender (35 to 40 minutes). Drain any excess liquid; spread barley on a baking sheet to cool.
  • In a sauté pan over medium heat, cook mushrooms with 1 tablespoon of oil until tender. Mix sautéed mushrooms into cooled barley, along with onion, parsley, salt and vinaigrette. Adjust seasoning as desired.
