Bean & Barley Salad

This is my sister Jessica's favorite salad so I decided to make it today so it would be ready for her when she gets home from work.  

It's a refreshing light salad with a nice little punch of flavor. 



1 can Chick Peas/Garbanzo beans
1 can Cannellini beans or White Beans
1 cup flat leaf Parsley
2 Tbs Rosemary
1 med Onion 
2 stalks Celery
1 small or 1/2 large Cucumber
4 Tbs Lemon juice
1/3 cup Olive Oil
1 cup cooked Barley
1 tsp Salt


Drain and rinse beans
Chop Parsley and Rosemary
Dice Onion and Celery
Peel, seed and dice Cucumber
Mix in large bowl and add Lemon juice, Olive Oil, Barley and Salt


Best if left to sit in the fridge for a couple hours before serving. 


  1. Yum! I love chick peas and beans. This sounds like a salad that would fill you up nicely. Without being hungry an hour later.

  2. Yes it does Ms Bunny ♥ .. and all good carbs and a good source of protein too! Can't beat that :D
