    5thCourse's Note:

    A healthy and filling salad bolstered by moist chicken pieces and accented by the crunch of apple, this barley dish is lifted to lofty heights by a light, tangy Dijon dressing. Leave the peel on your apple for even more color.

      This is a winner! I used a whole box of barley (I think its 6 cups cooked) and added a box of wild rice to it. I adjusted everything else but left out the tomatoes and used 1/2 a large onion. The dressing is wonderful and creamy, not too sweet nor too tangy. I diced a few chicken breasts and boiled them in salted water to cook them. I tossed while the barley was still warm but not hot. Everyone loved this even DH who thought he would hate it. I'm sure this will become a go-to meal for us. I can see where this would be great on a picnic or for a pot luck. Thanks for posting.

      I had some leftover chicken so made this lovely recipe. I cooked the barley in vegetable stock to give it a bit of flavour. It was easy to prepare the ingredients and throw it all together quickly. I didn't use a whole tablespoon of sugar, figuring that there was enough sugar in the tomatoes and apples, and plus we don't like things too sweet. I think the dressing would also be nice with balsamic vinegar. Thank you for such a simple recipe (and for a great use for leftover roast chicken), good luck for the competition.
