Excellent salad, I toasted the barley in the oven first, then cooked it in the water, I added fresh dill also. It was a huge hit!

I doubled the lemon, and added 1/4 c fresh chopped basil. also increased the purple onion to 1/2 onion. i like the barley in this - excellent contrast to the peas.
I made it exact to the measurement and it came out quite well. It is fluffy, and hearty at the same time. I am looking out for other crunchy options to replace sugar snap peas, just to make this with whatever veggies I have got in my fridge.
