This is a great salad recipe that's light enough for a hot day in September, but is nice and filling. Barley is a wonderful, fiber filled grain that will help you to feel fuller, longer.
1 1/2 cups pearl barley (not quick-cooking)
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots (about 1 medium)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup roughly chopped fresh herbs
