    Wow... this sounds fantastic. Think I will make it tomorrow!

    UPDATE: I made it, and it was sooo delicious! I used regular pearl barley, reduced-fat feta, and light balsamic vinegrette. I made roasted veggies to go with it. I will definitely be making this again.

    I'm just going through to the kitchen now to make something similar for my dinner. Can't make it exact as I don't have the "right" ingredients.

    OK - only got ordinary pearl barley - it's on to cook now. I do have olives, salad onions, feta cheese. I only have normal-sized tomatoes - so I'll dice.

    Very Good
    Very tasty salad. I substituted Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Salad dressing, only 40 calories for 2Tbls but lots of flavor. - 3/30/09

    DEEE-LISH-SHOUS!! I used regular pearl barley and calamata olives (quartered) and added a bit of celery and chick peas. Because I ended up with so much barley, I doubled the dressing & lemon juice. I will DEFINITELY make this again! - 8/29/08
