    I personally really enjoyed this salad. However, the rest of my family did not. DH didn't like the flavor of either the vinegar or an herb & DS (16) didn't like that it was a warm salad. I didn't have radishes & used red & green pepper instead of yellow but I still loved all the fresh herbs & the dressing was really flavorful for such a simple combination. I'm a barley lover & can eat it any which way so I could see myself making this again in the future, but it would just be enough for myself. :) Thanks for sharing, Martha!

    Loved it! The whole family ate it. Although I think maybe I overcooked the barley a little, it was a little slimy.

    This was a great salad. I made it without the garlic and chives to make the "herbiness" a little more subtle (matter of personal preference) and added lemon juice to the dressing. The radishes are a great addition. Next time I make this I think I might use less oil (maybe half), though, as I found this a bit on the oily side. (Other people didn't, though, so maybe it's just another matter of taste). I used this as a side dish for three people and it lasted a whole week - next time I think I'll make a bit less!
