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.
