Barley Salad with Tomatoes and Olives

Pin It

Tired of rice? Try barley! It’s absolutely delicious in salads and it’s a nutritious whole grain.

This is a very simple salad; the idea is that you can come up with endless variations according to what you have on hand.

You should know that barley contains gluten, so if you are on a gluten-free diet, you’ll still want to stick to rice in your salads!
