    duonyte's Note:

    From Good Housekeeping, 8/11. This main dish salad uses both barley and chickpeas, which makes a very satisfying meal. I think some chopped scallion is a nice addition. I cook my own chickpeas from dried, less sodium and a superior flavor, I feel.

    1. 1
      Place barley in a 4 qt saucepan. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, or until toasted, stirring.
    2. 2
      Stir in the broth and water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 35 minutes or until tender. Drain if necessary, and set aside to cool slightly.
    3. 3
      Meantime, scoop out and discard the seed cavity of the cucumber, then cut it up into 1/4 in pieces.
    4. 4
      Pit and chop the peaches.
    5. 5
      Cut the tomatoes into quarters (halve if they are very small).
    6. 6
      In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil and 1/4 tsp salt.
    7. 7
      Add barley and toss until well coated. Allow to cool, then add the cucumbers, peaches, tomatoes, and chickpeas, tossing until well combined.
    8. 8
      Serve over lettuce leaves.
    9. 9
      Note: I had no basil leaves when I made this again, so used the vinaigrette from Fingerling Potato Salad With Honey-Thyme Vinaigrette, some additional fresh thyme and a little pineapple sage, which worked very well.

      This had a lovely flavor that was better than the sum of its parts. I seem to have run out of barley, but used kasha (buckwheat) and it was just as good!

      I did cut this recipe in half for the 2 of us, then used some homemade vegetable broth as well as 2 small, very flavorful, home-grown peaches (a gift from some good friends) & this salad turned out just great! Absolutely wonderful, in fact, & I'll be keeping the recipe around for future enjoyment! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
