Barley and Kale Salad
By Kathryn Washburn Breighner
We had unexpected dinner guests and I needed to come up with a salad idea using what I had in the kitchen. This 3 ingredient salad has become a favorite in our house--so good and so easy.
In 2 cups water, cook 1 cup pearl barley, simmer 40-45 minutes until barley is tender but still firm. Cool to room temperature.
In a serving bowl, add 4 cups chopped kale, the cooled barley and 3/4 cup Pond Hill Farms Spicy Peanut Sauce--or any store or home made peanut sauce. Pond Hill Peanut Sauce is fabulous. In a hurry, I have served this warm and it is very tasty. But it can also be served chilled. The salad will hold for several days...assuming it lasts that long.
