Barley, green olive and mozzarella salad

This came about as a bit of a 'what have I got in the cupboard to use up?' moment...    Some time ago I bought some barley on a whim, and have added it to rice from time to time.  Well, it really needs to be used up now, along with the mozzarella that is due to be used before tomorrow.

Ingredients (serves 2 generously - the picture is a third of the total)
1 cup of barley
1 red  onion
1 cucumber
tin of sweetcorn
1/2 can red kidney beans, drained
1 can stuffed olives (40)
100g mozzarella
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp honey

  • Cook the barley according to instructions (I use a rice cooker with double the amount of water), and allow to cool.
  • Chop the onion, chop the cucumber and mozzarella into 1cm pieces and halve the olives.
  • Make the dressing by whisking together the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice and honey.
  • Toss all the ingredients together and store in fridge until ready to eat.
