A clean and simple salad with a nicely acidic dressing, served with a creamy, sweet poached egg – that for me is the perfect lunch.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g pearl barley
10 asparagus spears
1 spring onion
1 head of frisee lettuce

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 teaspoon shallot, finely chopped
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
4 eggs
good bread

Method

  1. Cook the pearl barley (barley) in boiling salted water for 20 minutes, then drain and leave to cool. Trim the asparagus spears and cut into 1-cm pieces. Thinly slice the spring onion (scallion). Mix the salad leaves with the drained pearl barley, asparagus and spring onion in a big bowl.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk the vinegar, mustard, garlic, shallot and honey together, then whisk in the olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. To poach the eggs, crack one at a time into a small cup. Add a dash of vinegar to a pan of steadily simmering water and create a whirlpool in the water using a whisk. Slowly tip one egg into the water, white first. Cook for 3 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon and place the spoon on kitchen paper to drain excess water. Now poach the remaining eggs, one at a time.
  4. Toss the dressing through the salad and place the poached eggs on top.

Tip

  • Any leftover chicken will work well in this salad.
