    100g pearl barley
    50g mixed seeds
    25g pack fresh basil

    Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

    3. Tear the basil leaves and chop the mint. Place the cooled pearl barley in a large serving bowl and stir through the herbs, toasted seeds, lemon zest, almonds, sprouts, avocado and rocket.

    4. For the dressing, place the feta, yogurt and lemon juice in a food processor and whizz until you have fairly smooth dressing. Taste and add a little more lemon juice if needed. Spoon the barley salad into serving bowls, drizzle over the dressing and serve.

    Cook’s tip

    Save time by using a pouch of cooked grains in place of the barley, such as Waitrose Love Life Spelt, Quinoa, Red Rice & Wild Rice.
