Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    2.25 cups chicken broth
    .5 cup medium pearled barley
    3 ears corn
    2 large tomatoes, diced
    1.25 cups cucumber - peeled, seeded, diced
    .25 cup Creamy Italian salad dressing
    S+P to taste
    oil of your choice (we use EVOO)

Directions

1 - Bring broth to boil in medium saucepan. Stir in barley, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 30 minutes - until most of the broth is absorbed and barley is firm-tender.

2 - Meanwhile, brush corn with oil and grill over medium heat until lightly browned on all sides - about 10 minutes. Remove kernels with a sharp knife (should yield about 2 cups).

3 - Place corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, and barley in a large mixing bowl. Pour dressing over top and toss to mix. Season with freshly ground pepper and kosher salt to taste. Serve at either room temperature or chilled. ENJOY!!!

* Makes 5 one-cup servings.
