Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Barley Salad with Apples

1/2 cup pearl barley
1 tsp salt Grinder
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 apple, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped (optional)
6 cups arugula, thick stems removed (about 6 cups)

Recipe Directions for Creamy Barley Salad with Apples

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the barley, 1 cups water, and teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the barley is tender and the water is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and spread on a rimmed baking sheet to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, oil, lemon juice, mustard, teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Add the celery, apple, mint, and cooled barley and toss to combine.

  3. Divide the arugula among bowls. Top with the barley mixture.
