Who doesn't love an edible bowl?
Barley is high in fiber, low in fat and cholesterol and high in vitamins and minerals. Fiber keeps you feeling full, so this really is a great mealtime dish. And if you're still hungry after dinner, eat the bowl. No really! Serve this salad in radicchio bowls for added color and maybe even a little extra crunch.
