Today I woke up to the first real snowfall of the year here in Waterloo, Ontario.
After work meetings and studying, I was craving something warm and fresh at the same time. The solution? Peach tea, and a citrusy salad. Here’s the recipe for the yummy plate I put together as part of lunch:
Citrus Beet Barley Salad
1/4 cup dry barley
6 slices beets
1 tsp grape seed oil
1 tsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 grapefruit, sliced
1 bunch baby boy choy, chopped
- Cook barley according to package; set aside.
- In small skillet, cook beets in a bit of oil, until soft and tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a bowl, and mix in oil and honey, stirring to coat.
- To plate, toss barley with beets, and add bok choy and grapefruit slices. Enjoy!
