Ingredients

For the dressing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Remove the skin from the chicken and shred the meat off the bones into bite-size pieces. Cook the pearl barley in boiling, salted water until tender, but not too soft, about 20 mins. Drain well, then tip into a large bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Blanch the green beans in more boiling, salted water for about 5 mins, until just cooked. Drain, rinse with cold water to cool, then pat dry with kitchen paper. Add to the barley along with pepper, onion, almonds, lemon zest and parsley.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk together the dressing ingredients with seasoning. Pour over the salad, toss everything together and serve.
