I've had a thing for barley recently, and really love this Curried Chicken and Barley Salad, though my husband mentioned that he isn't a huge fan, so I went looking for another kind. I came across this one on Pinterest and just had to try it. I'm a huge fan of all these flavors together, so I'm hoping he'll be liking it too. Now that the weather has started to warm up, I need some good salads to serve for dinner - instead of the soups I rely on in the winter months.
I made this to take for a potluck, so I haven't done much more than just taste it - to adjust for seasonings, of course - but the couple bites I had were amazing. So good!
I used more barley than the original recipe called for. Did I mention that I'm a huge fan? I also used garlic powder and salt instead of garlic salt - mainly because I couldn't find the garlic salt when I looked for it. I didn't think it needed any additional salt when I tasted it, but it's still a good idea to taste it and adjust according to your tastes. I'm thinking this will be really good served with some tortilla chips, for some crunch and a little added salt. Also, I bet this would be great wrapped up in a tortilla. With avocado.
Serve with some grilled chicken - with taco seasoning - maybe? So many options. He better like this stuff.
