This simple-to-make, adaptable and robust grain salad is an exciting alternative to boring old sandwiches for a packed lunch.
Along with oats, pearl barley is rich in beta glucans, which bind to cholesterol in the gut and help prevent it being absorbed. Heart UK recommends we eat 3 g of beta glucans a day to help lower cholesterol.
You can mix and match the ingredients of the salad to suit your taste buds and contents of your fridge. It's ideal for adding any leftovers to, or you can substitute salmon or tofu for the chicken if you prefer.
