Barley is such a great grain and using it in a salad as this is a nice way to show people that it's good for more than just soup. I cooked my barley in my rice cooker - my preferred way to cook most grains. I modified the instructions a bit by putting in the barley and veggies in the bowl and the dressing ingredients in a smaller one. I was a bit worried about the soy sauce so started with a teaspoon and eventually added 1 1//2 tsp. - I found that to be quite sufficiently salty. I added little water to make up the difference in volume. After tasting the salad, I felt it needed just a little something, so added two chopped scallions, which went very well with the remaining ingredients. This will be a nice addition to my lunch tomorrow.
