It’s the official start to summer and you know what that means? Lots more salads around here! Light, bright flavors take center stage this time of the year. I’m always a fan of salads…as long as they have a whole lot of flavor and interesting ingredients. This Vegan Toasted Barley with Broccoli Salad will keep you well nourished and satisfied. The toasted pecans add a nice heartiness and healthy fats, that should help to keep cravings for heavier foods at bay. After all. It’s not only summer, but it’s bikini season too!
