Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Boil the carrots for 2 minutes and refresh it in some cold water.

Combine the cooled barley, chickpeas, lemon zest, lemon juice, feta and spring onions.

Stir in the marinated carrot slices with marinate that will act as the dressing. Scatter the avocado on top and serve.
