    WiGal's Note:

    Posting for ZWT#6. From CookingLight contributor Suzanne Rumsey of Fort Wayne, Indiana who won $5000 for this recipe! What would YOU do if you won that money? :) A make ahead and time does not include chilling time. It says 8 servings but think they might be pretty small portions.

      This salad was just wonderful and filling (if you eat a bit more than the 'serving size'. I also added red onions and omitted olives (dont like them), increased the feta a bit. The flavours all come together well for a filling and healthy meal!

      I can see why this won a prize, it's delish! I love the citrus in the dressing, in fact, I doubled the dressing. I also added some finely chopped red onion and used red and yellow peppers as that is what I had in the garden that I needed to use up. Oh, also used regular fat feta, cuz that is what we like. : ) I could see making this with tuna instead of the chicken as well. A great summer dish, thanks for posting, WiGal.

      Lovely and fresh and good for you! I had cooked the barley the night before and bought a rotisserie chicken, so this recipe literally came together in minutes. Everything was so good - filled you up without stuffing you up. Thanks for a great recipe.
