This refreshing barley salad is excellent superfood for the start of the year.

Barley curbs hunger for a long span of time, and it tastes great. You can serve this salad just as is for a light lunch or as a side for a main course.

For the salad:

2.5 dl quick cooking barley

1/2 yellow pepper

3 tomatoes

1 bunch radishes

1 red onion

2 garlic cloves

For the dressing:

50 ml good olive oil

Juice of half a lemon

Salt and pepper

Pea shoots

Cook the barley in boiling salted water until tender, then drain and let cool. Dice the tomatoes, pepper and onion. Chop the garlic. Wash the radishes and slice thinly. Combine together with the barley.

To make the dressing, mix together the olive oil and lemon juice and season to taste. Pour over the salad. Put in the refrigerator for about an hour to let the flavours develop before serving. Garnish with pea shoots.
