Ingredients

Salad:

2 cups chicken or vegetable broth, low-sodium canned, or homemade

1 cup barley

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup chopped dried apricots

1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 scallion (white and green parts), thinly sliced

Dressing:

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoons honey

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the barley, oil, and salt. Bring back to a boil, adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook until tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile make the dressing: Whisk the lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a smooth dressing.
  3. Drain excess liquid from barley, if needed. Transfer to a bowl and toss with the remaining salad ingredients and dressing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
