Roasted Mushroom Salad


The mushrooms in this salad are tender and slightly caramelized when they come out of the oven. The barley adds texture and the radicchio adds freshness and a touch of bitterness, while the honey in the dressing helps to sweeten everything up.

Nutrition Profile:


  • ½ cup pearl barley

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 3 (8 ounce) packages fresh cremini mushrooms, quartered

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 2 cups thinly sliced radicchio

  • ½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ½ ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved

  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in oven: preheat to 450°F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in barley; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, soy sauce and 2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl. Add mushrooms to the mixture and toss to coat. Carefully remove the hot pan from the oven; spread the mushrooms on it in an even layer. Roast until tender and golden, about 20 minutes.

  3. Drain the cooked barley and transfer to a large bowl. Immediately add 1 tablespoon each oil and lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  4. Add the roasted mushrooms, radicchio, parsley and Parmesan to the barley mixture. Whisk honey and the remaining 1 tablespoon each oil and lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl until combined. Drizzle over the salad and toss to coat.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
