My Shabby Chic Inspirations Booth has some new items. There have been some changes in my booth since the last time I posted about it. A cute Antique snack table and a shabby chic sofa table are some of the new furniture items.

Last night I was craving a vegetable salad without lattice. I gathered all the vegetables I wanted in the salad and then I thought I needed to make it hardy. First I thought about putting grilled chicken in it but I didn't have any defrosted. I was looking through my can items and found some chick peas, which I love. Then I saw the pearl barley. Perfect! These two items will make the salad not only hardy but full of protein and fiber.
1 large Cucumber
1 cup diced Green bell pepper
1 cup diced Vidalia onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh Parsley, two tablespoons for dressing
2 cups of Cherry Tomatoes sliced in half
1 can Chick Peas
2 cups of cooked Pearl Barley
Garlic and Butter Croutons
6 oz. Tomato Basil Feta Cheese, 2 oz. for the salad dressing
2 cloves of chopped Garlic, 1 clove for the salad dressing
Add all ingredients together in a large bowl except for the Feta Cheese and croutons. Add them when you are ready to serve the salad.
|Pearl Barley, Cook according to the direction on the package. Let cool before adding the vegetables.|
1 clove of chopped Garlic
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
2 oz. Tomato Basil Feta Cheese
1 tea. salt
1 tea. pepper
½ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
¼ cup of water.
