The L&T tasting panel loved this full-flavored contribution from Jennifer Cain. "When I tasted this tangy salad at a cookout, I immediately asked for the recipe," she writes from Bel Air, Maryland. "Even after I pared it down and added veggies, it was still a hit!"
A tangy dressing makes this refreshing vegetable blend especially pleasing. You could serve it as an appetizer or a side dish. Sometimes I use thinly sliced carrots, zucchini or pearl onions.
This tangy-sweet dressing is perfect for large gatherings. Keep it warm in a crockpot or slow-cooker. I like serving it over dandelion or spinach salad, and I also like it mixed in with mashed potatoes. Just a little gives a lot of flavor.
"I adapted this great-tasting wholesome salad from another recipe," notes Marge Chapko from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. "I serve it to family , friends and even people who don't like barley#151;and they end up asking for the recipe. I sometimes turn it into a main dish by adding leftover meat."
