      8 medium cobs Ontario Sweet Corn, husked
      1 cup barley
      3 large firm Ontario Field Tomatoes, cubed
      Half large sweet green pepper, chopped
      8 green onions, sliced
      2 medium cloves garlic, minced
      1/3 cup vinegar
      1/4 cup olive oil
      1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
      1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
      1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Methods/ Steps

      With sharp knife, cut kernels from cobs to make 4 cups; set aside.
      In large saucepan over medium heat, cover and cook barley in 4 cups lightly salted boiling water 35 to 40 minutes or until tender (barley will still be slightly chewy).
      Add corn kernels during last 10 minutes; drain, if any liquid remains, and cool.
      Gently stir in tomatoes, green pepper, onions and garlic.
      Whisk together vinegar, oil, cumin, salt and pepper; pour over corn mixture.
      Stir in parsley and toss well to combine.
      Cover and refrigerate for several hours for flavour development.
