Lemon Barley Pilaf

Whew!  It’s been a busy week, and I’m late in getting this post off.   This is an Around My French Table recipe and part of the French Fridays with Dorie blogging group.  You know the drill for these recipe.  We’re asked not to post the recipe, but you can find it in the book.   Just in case you don’t have to book, I have good news for you.   August will mark Julia Child’s 100th birthday month.   To celebrate, I’ll be blogging some of her most famous recipes with some stories, fun facts and quotes from our dear Julia.    Any requests?



Well back to the pilaf… I love barley and was very interested to try the recipe.   My friend Jane makes a great salad with barley and tuna.  It’s so good on a hot summer day.    I simmered the barley on the stove, and carefully added the chopped vegetables just as Dorie suggested so they didn’t overcook.

The pilaf was tasty, and make a nice side dish with the grilled corn salad and salmon with dill and lemon.

    This was a perfect combination dinner. I honestly think your corn relish gave some oompf to your Pilaf. Such a good side with salmon. Would love to have your friend Jane’s barley/tuna salad recipe. I went cold with my Barley, used Dorie’s Bonne Idea and threw in ham and just loved it.
