Warm Cauliflower and Herbed Barley Salad
Bon Appetit Magazine, March 2013, p. 44
Honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this recipe but blog contributor the grandcruman was open to trying it, so I was in. And, I LOVED IT.
Here is the ingredient list, and you have to admit, it doesn't sound like it'd taste great: barley, cauliflower, beans, salt & pepper, lemon juice and zest, mayo, Dijon-mustard, olive oil, parsley and tarragon.
As we try to eat more of a plant-based diet, this recipe is a keeper. Filling and flavorful. (I'm actually craving it right now as I write.) It's also a quick weekday recipe since it only took about 20 min to make.
- Used farro instead of pearled barley (since we had farro in the house)
- Used cannellini beans instead of gigante, corona or butter beans
- Didn't need to use all of the dressing
