"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
