3 cups water
1/2 pound Provolone cheese, cut into -inch cubes

Cooking Instructions

1. In medium saucepan with lid bring water to a boil. Add barley and return to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 45 minutes or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. (If using whole grain barley, it may be necessary to increase cooking time to 50-55 minutes. It may also be necessary to drain off any unabsorbed liquid after cooking.) Cool.
2. In large bowl, combine cooked and cooled barley, Provolone cheese, salami, artichokes, pepperoncini, bell pepper, mushrooms, olives, Parmesan cheese, basil and parsley.
3. Drizzle with salad dressing and toss to coat. Cover and chill for 2 hours. Just before serving, toss again, adding more dressing if necessary.
Makes 12 servings.
