Instructions
  1. In medium saucepan with lid, bring water to a boil.
  2. Add barley and return to boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 45 minutes or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. (If using whole grain barley, it
  4. may be necessary to increase cooking time to 50-55 minutes. It may also be necessary to drain off any unabsorbed liquid after cooking.)
  5. In large bowl combine cooked barley, beans, oranges, onion, bell pepper and cilantro. Set aside.
  6. In a small saucepan mix together vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt, pepper, chili powder, dry mustard and pepper sauce. Heat and stir until mixture bubbles.
  7. Pour hot dressing over barley-vegetable mixture. Add cooked and cubed turkey or chicken.
  8. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight to allow salad to chill and flavors to blend.
