Is there such a thing? I love barley, but usually use it in soup. I think we are in for a hot spell which mean lots of salad dinners for us. Anyone have recipes for barley salad? Either with or without meat. Thanks.

No I haven't. I had never heard of Barley Salad until you asked for recipes. Had to google it to see what came up. Looks interesting.

I just came across this recipe in my "want to try" book. It looks good to me


Barley Salad and Apples, Grapes, and Walnuts

3 cups water
2/3 cup pearl barley
1/4 ts salt
1/4 cup low fat sour cream
2 tbs. reduced fat mayo
1 Tb. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
1 large unpeeled apple diced to 1 inch
1 cup seedless red grapes halved
1/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped


1. Combine water, barley and salt in medium pan and bring to a boil over med-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain in colander, then rinse under cold running water and set aside.

2. Stir together the sour cream, mayo, lemon juice, and honey in a serving bowl. Add barley, apple. grapes and walnuts, toss gently to coat evenly.

Sounds good to me. I would try adding dried cranberries to this also.
