Beef and Barley Salad (Gluten Free and Dairy Free)

Looking for a quick weekday GF DF  lunch solution? Look no further! We love salads at lunchtime, and this one has all the elements of a hearty, healthy noon-time meal!

P.S. leave out the lettuce and grab a cupful for a mid-day snack!

1 cup uncooked barley- cook according to package
1 1/2 cup chopped cooked roast beef
1/2 yellow pepper chopped
1/2 red pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1/4 cup green olives chopped
A splash of seasoned rice vinegar
Weber Chicago Steak Seasoning to taste
Onion powder to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
Mustard powder 1 tsp
Handful of fresh romaine
Handful of fresh arugula
Honey mustard dressing

Cook barley according to package. While that is cooking, chop roast beef, peppers, onion, and olives. Mix all together except onions. Once barley is done, immediately add onions to hot barley to soften their bite. Then add the rest of the chopped ingredients and season to taste. Chill mixture in the icebox until cool. Spoon mixture over a bed of romaine and arugula and drizzle with honey mustard.
