About this Recipe

This dish is packed with flavor, starting from barley and mushrooms for chewiness, kabuli chana for a mealy touch, cucumber for a juicy crunch, and fresh tomatoes for tang, this salad features a wide assortment of ingredients, further enhanced with a tongue-tickling dressing of peppy balsamic, refreshing lemon juice and olive oil – which does the perfect balancing act. Enjoy this salad chilled, to relish an exciting crunch and to avoid sogginess.
