Pearl Barley Salad With Feta, Toasted Almonds Lemon and Parsley

“This recently appeared in the Sunday Life magazine, as 'Freekah salad ..." by renowned chef Karen Martini. I couldn't find freekah - and Karen recommended pearl barley as a 'perfect substitute'. The recipe calls for feta, but I've made it without and it was still delicious. I'm trying to lose a few kilos, so also omitted the oil - still yummy. Have it cold - or warm and season to taste. It goes perfectly with the Greek lamb dish I've posted - also by Karen Martini”
