      very nice - i eat it cold over greens with the feta cheese on top, and sliced boiled beets around the edge of the plate.

      I really liked this salad. It was good hot but better cold I think. I left out the oregano for personal preference. i also added a can of pinto beans to make it more of a meal. Thanks for the recipe.

      I LOVED this! I don't have much experience with barley so I followed the package instructions: I used one 14oz can of vegetable broth plus enough water to make 3 cups then boiled it over low heat for 1 hour. I mixed the oregano, salt and pepper with step 2. I used whole red and yellow bell peppers and a whole bunch of green onions. I also doubled the feta. The sundried tomatoes give this a very nice flavor. I enjoyed the meaty texture of the barley with the crunch of the bell peppers. This is a HEALTHY WINNER of a recipe! Made for Zaar Tag.
