Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes With Minted Barley Cucumber Salad

From the Culinary Institute of America. One of my new favorite grains is pearl barley. It comes in a small version (that I usually use for soups), but recently I came across a larger version of it, and I really love it. It takes forever to cook, so I usually make a big batch and keep it in the fridge for a quick side to whatever I am making for dinner. These tomatoes would make a great appetizer, or even a side dish. I would definitely recommend using the smaller pearl barley for this just due to the size of the tomatoes you are stuffing. UPDATE: I finally got around to making these, and I really think they are missing something! I could NOT figure out what though! Everyone else really liked them, but personally, I think they need something else. Maybe cilantro?? Any ideas...let me know! They are also time consuming to make....coring the tomatoes and stuffing them was alot of work. Maybe it was because it was Xmas Eve and I had 9 other things cooking simultaneously! LOL.
