If more than two people at the table "love" beets and/or barley, don't expect to find any beet & barley salad leftovers for tomorrow's lunch unless you double this recipe . . . some family members like to eat this salad as though it's the main dish, y' know.
Rinse barley in cold water; drain. Place barley in small saucepan with salt and water. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer over low heat 40 to 45 minutes--till tender and water is absorbed. Set aside to cool in a large serving bowl.

Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and, if desired, sugar. Add to beet-barley mixture. Toss lightly. Serve.
