Cherry, Chicken, Pecan Barley Salad



This salad will make your taste buds sing! It is hearty and full of wonderful, healthy ingredients! Try using different grains. I had barley on hand, so that is what I used. I think this would be great with farro or wheat berries too.

Serves 4 ( 1-1/4 c. = 10 points +)

  • 3 T. olive oil, divided
  • 2 T. cider vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1-1/2 c. cooked barley
  • 1/4 c. chopped pecans, toasted
  • 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 1 T. chopped, fresh thyme
  • 1/4 c. dried cherries
  • 1 oz. baby arugula
  • 2 oz. goat cheese, crumbled


Combine 2-1/2 T. oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar in a large bowl. Add barley, nuts, and chicken.
Place cherries in a small bowl. Cover with 1/2 c. boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes; drain and chop.
Heat remaining 1-1/2 tsp. oil in a nonstick skillet. Add onion and thyme and cook until onion is tender. Stir onions and cherries into barley mixture. Stir in arugula. Sprinkle with goat cheese.
