Anyways, this salad has a crisp, refreshing citrus flavor, with the surprising comfort of barley and garlic hidden in there. The pumpkin seeds add a nice crunch, while the cumin lends a hint of Mediterranean flavors. It's a nice and fresh meal that will definitely keep you feeling satisfied and healthy. Hope you like it.
2 cups water
1 cup barley, uncooked
1 tomato, diced
1 orange, peeled, seeded, and diced
1/2 cup yellow or red onion, thinly diced
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
Dash of fresh basil, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. lemon zest
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt, divided (or to taste)
Dash of cayenne pepper
Dash of paprika
Dash of cumin
Total Cook Time: 20 minutes.
Instructions:1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in the barley, 1/4 tsp. of salt, and fresh garlic. Continue cooking until the water is absorbed, about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. While the barley is cooking, chop up your veggies. Add the diced tomato, orange, onion, parsley, and basil to a medium bowl. Mix together. Add in the lemon juice, lemon zest, pumpkin seeds, 1/4 tsp. salt, cayenne, paprika, and cumin. Toss to coat.
3. Once the barley is cooked, stir it in with the salad, or you can just serve the salad on top of the barley.
Does anyone know of any good (and easily-accessible) home remedies for cluster headaches or migraines? Though I rarely have to deal with headaches like this, it would be nice to have something on-hand to help on days like today. I'm sure it would also be helpful to share with those who have to deal with these crippling headaches on a daily basis.
