    INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Combine barley and water in a medium-sized saucepan and place over high heat, bring to a boil.

    3. When the barley is done, toss the vegetables with the barley in a large serving bowl.
    4. In a separate bowl, mix the vinegar, garlic, oil, and mustard in a bowl and pour over the barley and vegetables.
