Made this to go along with the Tarragon Chicken. I didn't have quick cooking barley, so I used regular barley that required extra cooking time. I found the flavor lacking a bit, so I added 1/4 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar and 1/4 cup of crumbled low fat Feta cheese which made the flavor pop. The next day I reinvented the dish by adding the leftover Tarragon chicken, one diced English cucumber and 2 cups of cherry tomatoes, halved. This made a delightful lunch that would travel well to take to work, etc.

This is a great recipe to "doctor" up - I used regular black olives to satisfy my kids, added chopped, fresh spinach, red beans and orange pepper. Awesome!
