Flavour-wise I think this is great. And while I love the use of mixed grains in a salad, the cooking method didn't work out for me. The barley turned to mush and the grains were under done. I used pearl barley though, maybe that was my mistake, it may cook faster than the other type. I re-did the grains and decided to just use barley the second time round - and that worked out perfectly. This does make a lot - 1 cup of barley goes a long way :). I served with the feta on the side and really enjoyed the dill and onion. I'd definitely make again only I'd probably cook the grains in separate pots. Thanks for sharing JB, the salad was a hit at our BBQ!
