1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse all fresh produce items under cold running water prior to prepping.

3. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring broth to a boil. Add barley and a pinch of salt. Stir, cover, reduce heat to a low simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until barley is tender. Add more broth if the pan becomes dry before the barley has finished cooking; check every 5 minutes until desired chewiness is reached; let cool.

4. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, orange juice, cilantro, jalapeno and salt and pepper to taste; set aside.

5. Divide and layer the salad ingredients evenly between 4 quart-sized wide mouth Mason jars in this order: dressing, cucumber, barley, peas, tomatoes, corn and salad greens. Seal and refrigerate until ready to eat.
