Preparation steps

1.

For the salad: Place the pearl barley in a sieve and rinse with cold water. Place the barley in a pot with 750 ml (approximately 3 1/4 cup) of water. Cover and simmer over low heat until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and allow to cool.

2.

Peel and dice the onion. Remove the pits from the olives and slice. Zest 1/2 an orange. Peel the remaining oranges with a sharp knife and segment with a knife. Reserve the excess juice. 

3.

For the dressing: In a bowl, whisk the reserved orange juice with the vinegar and oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4.

For serving: In a bowl, stir the barley with the onions, olives, capers, orange segments and dressing until thoroughly combined. Serve sprinkled with the orange zest.
