1 cup pearl barley
3 cups water

1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Place barley, water and 1 teaspoon salt in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 45 minutes or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, oregano and 1/4 teaspoon salt; pour over hot cooked barley. Cool to room temperature. Gently stir in onions, parsley, tomatoes, bell pepper and cheese. Serve salad chilled or at room temperature on lettuce-lined plates. Garnish each serving with tomato wedges or lemon slices, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
