Method

To prepare the vinaigrette, place mustard, shallots, vinegar, oil, brown sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk together until blended and slightly thickened. Set aside.

Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan.

Stir in quick-cooking barley, reduce heat and cover.

Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until water is absorbed, then remove from heat and let rest for a few minutes.

While barley is cooking, combine cabbage, onions, carrots and ham in large bowl and toss lightly to combine.

Once barley is cooked, spoon over salad and toss again.

Add vinaigrette and toss once more.

Serve immediately while warm or chill to enjoy later.
