Can you substitute pomegranate molasses for paste? I've never seen the paste in my store. Thanks :)

Hi Natalie,
You are right:) I always use pearl barley instead of wheat, like even asure:) The pearl barley tastes like wheat in here, it is strange I know:) If you like you can use wheat instead of pearl barley;)
I should have name it Barley/Wheat Salad....

Valla ben denedim, deneyimi mi yazdim size iste :) Tabakta uslu duruyorlar da, is yemeye gelince kendilerini belli ediyorlar. Adi bugdaydan cok arpa salatasi olsa daha dogru olacak kanimca! Siz de zaten arpa/bugday olarak degistirmissiniz. Boylesi daha dogru olmus :) Elinize saglik.

Ben hala guzel ortulerin hayraniyim bu arada ;-)
