Delicious!!! Made have a recipe and used fresh dill and added some green onions. I added a little broth while cooking (it was getting dry) but ohhhhhhhhh so good. Leftovers are wonderful also...in the same day. Thank you. Made for Zaar Alphabet Tag Game 2010.
This is a very yummy, healthy and beautiful salad recipe! I enjoyed all the different flavours together and thought that the dill was especially nice. The barley makes for a chewy salad, that fills you up for a while. The veggies add a very refreshing touch. YUM! I subbed cooked leek for the celery as I really dont enjoy celery in salads and left out the pine nuts due to an allergy. The finished salad was enjoyed very much by me and my family. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Lori! Made and reviewed for Everyday Is A Holiday Tag Game April 2010.
This is unique and tasty! I also did not have enough chicken broth (it really cooked down) and did have to add more. I also ended up covering the pot to retain moisture. I ended up using this as a lunch to take to work, so I added some chopped grilled chicken to add some protein for a complete meal. This was very tasty, with a great nutty texture.

I did half the recipe with 1 large tomato. I didn't drain and rinse. Cause I didn't have enough broth, I had to add more while cooking. I omitted the dill. It's very yummy. I'll have to do another batch later in the week. My son loves it. Thanks Lori :) Made for Holiday tag.
Pleasantly surprised. I picked this because I love barley, but was not sure how it would be in a salad. A great nuttiness with accents of sweet veggies. We ate it a room temperature. Playing with the idea of weather a little red onion would ruin it or just one more layer of flavor??? This is a keeper. Thanks Lori. P.S. do not cheat on the fresh dill as it is an important part of this dish.
Although I think the chicken broth would be very nice in this recipe, I switched to a homemade veggie one instead since I was making this for a couple of vegetarians at the dinner table! VERY, VERY TASTY with the barley & the recipe is a great keeper! Thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday!]
