How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the Wehani rice with 4 cups of cold water, add a large pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the grains are just tender, about 45 minutes. Drain the rice and rinse it under cold water; drain well. Spread the rice out on a baking sheet and let cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, cover the barley with 4 cups of water, add a large pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 40 minutes. Drain well. Spread the barley on a baking sheet and let cool completely.
  3. In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add a large pinch of salt and the cracked wheat, stir well and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and set aside for 15 minutes. Drain off any excess water and transfer to a platter to cool completely.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the grains with the tomatoes, cucumbers and parsley. Add the olive oil and lemon juice and toss well. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the salad at room temperature or chilled.

Make Ahead

Once all of the grains have cooled completely, they can be combined and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before proceeding. The salad can be refrigerated for up to 1 day.
