Start the night before you want to make the recipe.
Pick over beans, rinse, cover with water, and soak overnight.
In the morning, drain well and place in 4-quart slow cooker along with barley, onion, garlic, and carrot. Cover with 8 cups water. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours until beans are tender.
In large bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, honey mustard salad dressing, mustard, and Parmesan cheese. Drain mixture in crockpot and stir into bowl. Stir in bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and Havarti cheese. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours before serving.
Note: I went web-surfing for something new to make in my slow cookers. This recipe caught my eye as I need beans and grains in my diet for health reasons. Haven't made it yet but plan to soon.
