Lemon, Dill and Feta give this barley salad a mediterranean twist.

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber, diced into bite size pieces
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • cup sliced purple onion
  • ½ cup feta cheese plus more for garnishing
  • 1 ½ cup cooked barley
  • cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 2 tablespoon fresh dill (or 2 teaspoon dried)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest and dill.
  • Chop all veggies and combine in a large bowl. Add the barley and feta cheese. Pour olive oil combination over the top and stir to evenly mix. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Garnish individual servings with more feta cheese if desired.

Notes

This salad can be served immediately, but I find that it tastes better if it rests in the fridge for an hour.  The flavors have more time to blend and the barley gets less chewy.
