I made this fresh, colorful mango salad on the fly and it was a big hit! The bright flavor is perfect for a spring or summer picnic, served right away or chilled. —Dan Wellberg, Elk River, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking barley
  • 2 medium limes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

Directions

In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in barley. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until barley is tender, 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
Finely grate enough peel from limes to measure 1 teaspoon. Cut limes crosswise in half; squeeze juice from limes. In a small bowl, whisk lime juice, lime zest, oil, mustard, honey, salt, cumin and pepper until blended.
In a large bowl, combine barley, peppers, onion, mango and cilantro. Add dressing; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 6 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Fresh pineapple or papaya can also be added, or used to replace the mango.
  • Just because we call for barley doesn't mean you can't try this made with quinoa, farro or other grains. It's all going to be delicious!
