Mixed Greens with Barley, Cucumbers & Garbanzo Beans
Served With Apple Lemon & Green Onion Vinaigrette

Naturally Vegan & Vegetarian
Yields: 8 Servings
Time: 20 Minutes
(9 Item Recipe)

Ingredients:

8 Cups Organic Mixed Greens
2 Cups Organic Radicchio, chopped
1 1/2 Cups Organic Barley, cooked and cooled (I use bob’s red mill)
2 Cups Organic Garbanzo Beans no-salt-added, rinsed and drained (I use dry from bob’s red mill & soak them)
6 Organic Radishes, quartered
1 Organic Cucumber, sliced thin
1 Organic Green Onion, chopped fine
3 tablespoons Organic Lemon Juice
3 tablespoons Organic Apple Juice

Directions:

Combine mixed greens, radicchio, barley, garbanzos, radishes and cucumber in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together lemon juice, apple juice, green onions and 1 tablespoon water. Drizzle dressing over the salad and toss.

Note:

This salad is a great salad that everyone loves.  Its super healthy and delicious.  Be sure to dress the salad prior to eating.  If you are preparing the salad ahead set the dressing aside until you are ready to serve.  Super quick and nutritious. I prefer to get the garbanzo beans and barley dried as they are much more affordable and I can get so much more for less without the added sodium and preservatives most canned options provide.  If you do not wish to use the dried which you will need to soak then the canned organic is OK, just be sure to get the no sodium, no salt canned option.
