Barley salad with tomatoes, feta and dill

About this recipe: I have just discovered barley and, well - it's good! It's rich in fibre, and in a salad it's very nutritious. You can serve this as a main dish, too. In any event, I was not hungry afterward. If you feel you need it, you can dress the salad with a little balsamic vinegar or a vinaigrette.


Serves: 4 

  • 100g barley
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 150g feta cheese, broken into chunks
  • 6 dill fronds, coarsely chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper

  1. Bring 1L water to the boil in a saucepan. Stir in the barley, reduce the heat to very low and cook the barley, covered, until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Check periodically to see if there is enough water, and add more if needed. Drain and cool.
  2. Place the barley in a salad bowl and toss with the tomatoes, the feta cheese and dill fronds. Season with salt and pepper.
