Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pearled barley
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 3 cups fresh corn kernels (from about 4 ears)
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives
  • 3/4 cup chopped pitted mild green olives
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a medium saucepan of salted boiling water, cook the barley until just tender, about 25 minutes. Drain well and spread out on a plate to cool completely.

  2. Meanwhile, spread the walnuts in a pie plate and toast for about 12 minutes, until golden. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

  3. In a bowl, toss the barley with the corn, walnuts and all of the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Make Ahead

The salad can be made up to 6 hours ahead and refrigerated. Serve it at room temperature.

Review Body: I really wanted to Love this recipe since I love corn and barley but it was just OK.  A bit dry and not nearly as flavorful as I expected it to be even with the nice list of ingredients.  The olives were a bit odd in this but did add nice saltiness.  The walnuts helped a lot to salvage it.  I doubled the recipe expecting to LOVE it but now I don't know what to do with it.  Served it at a party last night and no one took seconds or commented on it.  Not a good sign.  Not a "keeper".
