Yum! We really enjoyed this salad for dinner tonight. I loved the tangy flavor that the mustard gives the dressing, while the lemon really makes the flavor bright. I wished I had longer to marinate the chicken, but even with just half an hour, it had a wonderful flavor. I left out the tomatoes, since they are out of season, but will try it with tomatoes next summer. We thought this would also be excellent with asparagus instead of (or in addition to) the beans. Thanks for posting a wonderful dish!

I love barley and was happy to try your recipe for ZWT #6 (I'm a Quisine Queen). It was wonderful and would make a delicious addition to a summer picnic table. Thanks for posting it.

Very good and easy to make dinner salad! I didn't have any basil but added 3 kiwi, sliced to the salad. Very good! Thanks for sharing!

Although nights are cool here now, days are still warm enough for me to do a little BBQing & that's what I did here! Followed your recipe right on down & I now have a great new way to serve up one of my favorite meals ~ Chicken breasts! Thanks for a wonderful recipe keeper!

What a great hearty meal. The dressing, chicken and barley work Sooo well together. Made as written, maybe next time I will try cutting the oil and using some lemon. Will be making this aging. Tanks for the post.

This was a great summer evening meal. I halved the olive oil and added a little lemon juice to the mix. Thanks for posting.
