Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Beet and Barley Salad

1 c dry pearl barley
3 beets (tops removed)
1/4 large red onion (about 1/2 cup, minced and soaked in cold water for 1/2 hour)
4 oz feta (crumbled)
4 scallions (sliced into fine rounds)
1 1/4 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Roasted Beet and Barley Salad

  1. Heat the oven to 450-degrees.

  2. Loosely wrap the beets in tin foil and roast in the oven until they are just fork tender--30 - 45 minutes. Peel and dice the beets into small cubes.

  3. Meanwhile, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add the barley and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the barley is al dente, about 30 minutes. If there is extra liquid in the pot, drain the barley and return it to the pan. Cover with a clean dishtowel until ready to use.

  4. Drain the red onion.

  5. Combine barley, beets, red onion, feta, and scallions in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle the lemon juice and olive oil over the top and toss to coat.

  6. Taste the mixture. As needed, add salt 1/4 teaspoon at a time (the feta is really salty!). Pepper to taste.

  7. Serve family-style in a large bowl or in individual bowls. Garnish with extra scallions.
