2009 Grand Prize Winner: Greek Chicken and Barley Salad
English professor Suzanne Rumsey was astounded when told she was a finalist. “I’d never participated in a recipe contest and entered on a whim,” she says.
Well, Rumsey must have a natural knack. She made her dish only once before submitting the recipe. The judges loved its simplicity, its use of whole-grain barley, and the vibrant flavors of feta, citrus, cucumber, and herbs.
