      Really delicious. I had cooked up a whole bag of barley and was looking for a salad to use part of it. I decided on this one and it was great. I made without the tomatoes and prosciutto (since I didn't have any on hand), but added garbanzo beans for protein and some fresh parsley. I decided not to salt it after tasting it. The cheese was salty enough for our taste and I had cooked the barley in lightly salted water.

      Great flavor combo! This makes a super-hearty salad, packed with lots of savory ingredients. I didn't have any cherry tomatoes, so I just chopped up some plum tomatoes instead. I think I also messed up and only used 1/2 cup of uncooked barley instead of a full cup (not good at multitasking after 10pm, lol), which would explain why the salad seemed a teensy bit salty to me. I guess that if you only use half the barley, you can definitely leave the salt out, because the prosciutto is salty enough on it's own. When I make this again (with the full amount of barley, of course), I'll have to taste it pre-salt to see if the prosciutto still gives enough salt for the dish. Even with my screw-up, I still loved this salad. This would be a good addition to a potluck meal, and it's a great way to use a grain that's not that commonly used in this way. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring '10 :)
