“Recipe found on and it is very highly rated. Perfect main course for a vegetarian or side dish for a summer BBQ! The original recipe called for a crazy amount of grains, so it has been revised taking other recommendations.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the salad: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the barley and cook for 15 minutes. Using a sieve, remove barley from the water and transfer to a bowl.
  2. Bring the water back to a boil and salt, to taste. Add the barley and rye and wheat berries and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Drain, transfer to a bowl, and cool.
  3. When cool, combine with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Meanwhile, make the Dressing: Whisk together the vinegar, dill, and garlic. While whisking, drizzle in the oil to make a smooth dressing. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve.
