Barley Salad

Hillside restaurant on Camelback Road in Phoenix serves this delicious salad. I couldn't wait to get into my kitchen to re-create it.  

Tastes & Treasures has a recipe for Black Bean and White Corn Salad on page 183. This Barley salad is very similar with Pearl Barley substituted for Black Beans.
