1) In medium saucepan with lid, bring water to a boil. Add pearl barley, wild rice and salt; return to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook about 40 minutes or until barley is tender but chewy.
2) While the barley and wild rice mixture is cooking, pour Blood Orange Olive Oil over the dried cranberries and set aside. Toast walnuts.
3) When barley rice mixture is cooked, drain any excess liquid from cooked barley and rice mixture. Place barley and wild rice in large bowl.
4) Drain cranberries into a measuring cup, reserving Blood Orange olive oil. Top off with additional EVOO, if needed, to make 1/3 cup total oil. Toss cranberries with barley and wild rice.
5) Mix lemon juice and onion. Whisk in olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over barley mixture. Add chopped parsley and toasted walnuts; mix well.

Serve at room temperature or chilled.
