This Cooking Light side dish would perfectly compliment Lizzy's Lamb dish below. It is one of our favorites year round. It is healthy and amazing.

1/2 Cup uncooked Pearl Barley
3/4 Cup rinsed and drained Garbanzo Beans
1/3 Cup Golden Raisins

1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion
2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
2 Teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Basil
3 Tablespoons Slivered Almonds- Toasted

Combine red wine vinegar and next 4 ingredients into a small bowl and wisk together. Pour over barley mixture. Chill. Stir in Basil and Almonds prior to serving.
