Simple, healthy side dish: Split pea and sweet potato barley salad

While in whole foods bulk section, I was inspired to make a new dish, split pea and sweet potato barley salad in sage honey butter. It was simple to make and the flavors worked really well together.

I boiled 1 C. of barley and .25 C. dried split peas in water flavored with salt and honey. Then I diced half a sweet potato, seasoned with salt and cayenne powder and roasted them in the oven at 375. Once the barley and potatoes were close to done, I melted some butter/olive oil in a skillet with honey and chopped fresh sage. The I poured that melty mixture over the combine ingredients, ending in a slight sweet, sagey perfume. Will make again.

Split peas are good!
