Ingredients

  • 1 cup pearl barley

  • 2 large tomatoes

  • 1 large cucumber

  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbles

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • (Optional) 3 twigs parsley

Preparation

  1. Cook the barley according to the bag’s instructions

  2. Once it is done, put it in a large bowl, add the olive oil (to prevent barley sticking together), and let it cool

  3. Chop the tomatoes and cucumbers into small cubes

  4. If using, chop the parsley into smaller pieces

  5. Add the tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, and parsley to the barley

  6. Enjoy!


Suggestion: If you don’t like feta cheese, you can serve with parmesan cheese on top instead.

You can eat this dish cold or heat it in the microwave for a few seconds to make it room temperature.

Storage Indications: You can store the barley in a tupperware. It's good for many days after you first make it.
