Asian Pearl Barley Salad

Posted by Tomohiro Matano on Jul 28, 2017 11:23:00 AM

Our Asian Pearl Barley Salad is a great alternative to traditional asian salads, filled with ramen noodles and even more sodium. This recipe calls for Tamari which is a lower sodium option to soy sauce. The crunch from the sesame seeds, carrots and red cabbage make this dish so refreshing and satisfying especially as a summer treat. Edamame is a legume, 1/2 cup of them a per day really punches up the fiber, protein and vitamin/mineral content of your diet. Not to mention other nutritional benefits.

Posted by Tomohiro Matano on Sep 17, 2016 1:16:51 PM
