Method: 
Bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Stir in barley and bring back to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer over low heat until tender, about 1 hour. Rinse with cool water, drain and set aside. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, scallion, parsley, mint and lemon zest. Toss in well-drained barley.

In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice with oil and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad and toss to combine.
