Barley, Black Beans & Mango Pilaf

Author Notes: I just began a new health regimen, and part of it meant cutting out white flour and processed sugars. Coming up with healthy alternatives to the pasta dishes I so adore has been a challenge, but this refreshing salad is my new go to! Perfect for summer or as a side to barbecue fare - light and refreshing with a surprising flavor kick from the cilantro. Cannelloni&Cayenne
