“Can a salad get any healthier than this one? I can’t believe it tastes so good.” Wanda S.
A Note from Dr. B.:
Quick-cooking barley contains all the nutrients of pearled barley in a quick-cooking form. This whole grain contains complex carbohydrates and—when mixed with fruits and vegetables—makes a delicious high-fiber, great-for-your-heart choice.
