It’s amazing how much tastier food looks when you pack it in a glass jar. Yum!

Notes

TIPS: Cook a batch of pearl barley in a large saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions or until just tender. Drain. Freeze portions in snap-lock bags for up to 6 months. Assemble the salad the night before and place dressing in a separate small container. Store in the fridge. To take it to work, transport in a chiller bag. Drizzle salad with dressing before serving.
