Beef, Mango and Barley Salad

Tender beef roast, seasoned to perfection, is tossed with sweet roasted red peppers and balanced with the winning tang of lime juice and cilantro. Juicy ripe mango and chewy barley finish the dish. Served hot or cold, this is a dish you can enjoy in any season.


  • 1½ tsp. paprika, divided
  • 1½ lbs. beef tri-tip roast
  • 2 bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup quick barley
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 mangos, chopped
  • ⅓ cup chopped green onions
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 Boston lettuce leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Move racks to middle and bottom.
  2. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon paprika evenly over roast. Place roast on rack within a shallow roasting pan. Roast to minimum internal temperature of 145ºF (30-40 minutes).
  3. Place bell peppers on a baking sheet and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place in oven under meat until tender (30 minutes).
  4. While meat is cooking, cook barley according to package directions.
