Rinsing the barley under cold water removes excess starch so the grains won't be sticky, and it cools the barley quickly so the salad can be tossed together. This salad makes a perfect accompaniment to grilled salmon.
Prepare barley according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Rinse barley with cold water; drain. Combine barley, peas, carrot, and mushrooms in a medium bowl.
Combine lemon juice and next 6 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Pour dressing over salad; toss gently to coat.
