  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Scoop out seeds of the 6 acorn squash halves. Bake squash halves in a nonstick baking pan, cut side up, until soft to the touch, about 20 minutes. Do not overcook.
  3. Remove squash halves from oven and let cool.
  4. To make stuffing, combine in a large bowl the next 7 ingredients (cooked barley through 2 tablespoons fresh basil strips). Mix well.
  5. To make dressing, whisk together in a small bowl the white vinegar, apple juice concentrate, garlic, and 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil.
  6. Pour dressing over barley-vegetable-berry mixture. Mix well. Let sit for 10 minutes. Use mixture to fill each half of squash.
  7. In a nonstick baking pan, place the stuffed squash halves. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve one squash half per person.
Recipe Notes

For a sweet-tangy note, add blueberries to stuffing.  The stuffing is also nice as a side dish, salad, or snack.
