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.

Add beets, green onions, dill, and feta to cooled barley.

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

If you and your family like barley, cook it ahead of time (in quantity) and store in the refrigerator for up to one week. It can be used to replace rice in many recipes. Also: Barley is known to raise good cholesterol levels while lowering the bad. [I posted this recipe.]
