This salad is hearty enough to serve alone as a light meal or on the side of a simple main course. Fiber-rich barley is filling and satisfying, and chickpeas add some protein to keep you full longer. With colorful veggies and a herby vinaigrette, it’s a winning combination. To keep the sodium low, cook the chickpeas in unsalted water.
