Don't let the long ingredient list deter you from preparing this recipe; many of the ingredients may already be in your pantry or refrigerator. Plus, the salad can be made up to three days ahead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sauté barley in hot oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat 4 minutes or until lightly browned; stir in broth. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until barley is just tender. Remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Step 2

Stir together chilled barley, chickpeas, and next 11 ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Add cheese just before serving, and toss gently.
