Barley Salad with Almonds and Apricots

Pearl barley

Here’s a Middle-Eastern inspired barley salad that’s a nice offering for buffets and potlucks. Its slight sweetness makes it a good foil for other Middle Eastern specialties like hummus, tabbouli, and baba ghanouj. Note that pot barley, a less refined form of barley than the common pearled barley sold in supermarkets, is offered as an alternative. Sold in natural food stores, it’s not only more nutritious, but cooks to a less sticky consistency. This is great with ordinary barley as well. more→
