Colorful Kale & Barley Salad with Sweet Onion Lemon Dressing recipe (vegan and dairy, gluten, egg, soy, and refined sugar free)

Great salad! I just made this last night for the first time.

I made the barley in my rice cooker so that saved me a lot of prep time. I did not heavy any thyme so I used a little bit of coriander powder. I did not have vegetable broth so used 1 cup chicken broth and 1 1/2 cups water instead.

I only had roasted pistachios so I used those instead of raw.

I used organic coconut palm sugar instead of cane sugar.

I added extra salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

Instead of slicing the red pepper, I chopped it in my Vidalia Chop Wizard. If you don't have a way to ribbon cut the carrot, just use a mandolin to shred it.

I recommend rubbing the kale with salt before you start preparing the other ingredients so that it starts to soften and becomes less bitter. When I added the dressing to the kale I just tossed it with salad tongs instead of rubbing it with my hands.
