Peachy Barley Salad

A scrumptious Peachy Barley Salad drenched in a peachy fruit juice. A little ginger sting contributes to an irresistible taste. Minus the cooking time it’s actually very quick and easy to make. 5 minutes tops for the preparation time!

Ok, so if you read through the recipe below you might have wondered how you are going to cut peach slices that comes from a tin. Since the peach slices are all drenched in juice you can’t just use a cutting board to cut the peach slices. Well here’s the answer…it’s really easy though. First, I transfer the peach slices to a salad bowl. And then I take a knife and just slice them in the salad bowl. They are already very soft so they cut easily. I know it’s a bit of an awkward position to cut but it works. If you have a better method please care to share in the comments. We are always eager to learn new tips and tricks.

Lastly, but not least, I’ve mentioned this in the notes but I’m going to mention it here as well…if you are sensitive to sugar make sure you buy a tin that reads peach slices in fruit juice and not a tin that reads peach slices in syrup.
