"This slightly sweet salad makes a very pretty presentation. Use plump and moist dried apricots, not hard and desiccated ones. Use soy yogurt to make this dish vegan."

1 1/2 cups
4 1/2 cups
red onion, thinly sliced
dried apricots, sliced
chopped fresh parsley
plain low-fat yogurt
bits of brocoli florets made this very colorful as well as tasty
This just didnt have a lot of flavor. I like all the ingredients so I may make it again adding more spices to increase the flavor.
Good with a few changes. Use a full cup apricots, and slivered blanched almonds. Increase turmeric to 1 teaspoon and the cinnamon to a heaping teaspoon. The heaping teaspoon of cinnamon gives a nice warmth to the salad, last but not least make sure to serve a room temp right after making. Flavors get more mellow after chilling or aging.
I loved this one. I doubled the spices and substituted cranberries for the apricots. I'm making a big batch for my daughter's wedding!
I love barley and apricots and almonds and yogourt, but found this salad bland. I followed the recipe exactly, apart from slightly decreasing the lemon juice and doubling the cinnamon and turmeric, as other reviewers suggested. I was expecting to love it, but found the result disappointing.
This dish tasted fine, but wasn't anything too special. I suggest you halve the recipe when you first try it, because it makes quite a lot, and you may end up getting tired of it even if you're not the only one in the house interested in eating it (as I was).
This was good on day 1, but it makes a ton and doesn't keep well. I won't be making it again.
This was very bland. I added some salt and spices and that did not help. Tasted a bit like oatmeal with fruit. It might be good as a sweet dish adding more honey and no onions but there are other recipes that are better.
