Sweet Potato Barley Salad

A guest post by Nurture
To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute the barley with quinoa, rice, or millet.  Nut-free/dairy-free.
  This is a recipe we recently made for a tasting/mixer Nurture hosted for Northwestern University Kellogg Graduate School of Management.  Sweet potatoes and barley may not sound exciting, but it is a tasty salad and was a big hit with the students! Who knew barley could be a suitable substitute for chicken wings?!  Steamed sweet potatoes cubes, fresh veggies, barley, and black beans are dressed with a lime, chili vinaigrette and the result is a refreshing and very satisfying salad. Make this on Monday and enjoy it all week!  Click here for the Sweet Potato recipe.
