    Info Black Bean and Barley Salad

    have about a cup of black beans to finish off? good...
    Black Bean and Barley Salad
    1-1/2 cups water
    1/2 cup pearled barley
    1 cup black beans
    3/4 cup corn kernels, thawed if frozen
    3/4 cup Italian style peeled tomatoes, drained and chopped
    1/2 cup green peas, thawed if frozen
    1/2 avocado, chopped
    2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
    1/4 cup water
    1 tbs lemon juice
    1 scallion, white part only, finely chopped
    1-1/2 tsp olive oil
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1/4 lb packaged salad
    Bring water to a boil in a heavy pot. Add barley and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 35-40 minutes until water has evaporated and barley is tender. Remove from heat. Transfer barley to a cookie sheet. Spread barley out to cool briefly. While barley is cooking, combine next 7 ingredients and salt to taste in a salad bowl. Cover and refrigerate until barley is cooled. Combine remaining ingredients, except lettuce, in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously until emulsified. Set aside. Transfer cooled barley to bean and vegetable mixture. Toss. Add dressing and toss again. Serve on a bed of lettuce. 4 servings = about 185 calories
