  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 3 cups fresh corn kernels (from about 4 ears)
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives

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.
