¼ c. canola oil
1 ¼ c. pearl barley
4 cloves garlic
¼ c. minced parsley
½ c. shiitake mushrooms

1 small zucchini, chopped
1 small yellow squash, chopped
1 medium carrot, grated

1 large red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small yellow and green peppers, seeded and chopped
¼ c. raspberry vinegar
1 tsp. sea salt

Place the barley and water into a saucepan. Bring the water to a boil, cover the pan with a lid, and simmer the barley for 20 minutes, until tender.

When the barley is cooked, drain it well and chill completely.

Heat the canola oil and garlic in a small saute pan over low heat. Slowly cook the garlic for 2 minutes, until golden brown, and transfer to a large mixing bowl.

In the same bowl, combine the peppers, parsley, zucchini, yellow squash, carrot, scallions and mushrooms with the cooked barley.
