This is one of my favourite salads.I  make this at least 2-3 times a month. If you do a big batch you can always keep in fridge to take as your lunch or microwave and have it warm for dinner.

If you want the barley water you can strain it while cooking before adding oil or salt. This can be served as a budget family friendly meal. If you want meat to go with it feel free to add some left over from a roast or some steamed or boiled meat in it.

I have so many vegetarian and vegan followers and I thought of uploading this specially for them.

Instead of having lemon and pepper add a  a salad dressing to your liking. I normally add parsley in it. But when I did this I haven’t had any in my garden or in fridge. Be creative &  Add other vegetables to it and make more nourishing let me know your ideas too. then I can try them too. 😄
