This is a perfect lunch on a sunny day, or any day. It’s a salad to use up the leftover cooked Barley. Of course you can cook Barley to make this salad as it is so simple and easy. Use any salad dressing of your choice. Today I used ‘My Buttermilk Dressing’.

1 Chicken Breast Fillet
Garlic Salt *OR Garlic Powder and Salt
Ground Black Pepper
Ground Chilli OR Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Continental Cucumber *OR 1 Lebanese Cucumber
