I love that this recipe uses barley. Growing up we would often incorporate barley into our family meals. From soups to pilafs, this high fiber whole grain is one of my favorites. Lately, with all the hype about quinoa, farro, or other ancient grains, I feel like we forgot about good old-fashioned barley!
Along with black beans, corn, tomatoes, jalapeños, lime and cilantro, this “Santa Fe Bean and Barley Salad” is a Southwest flavor delight!
