  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the barley in a small pan and cover with boiling water. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until softened; drain. Leave to cool slightly before transferring to a serving bowl. Meanwhile, arrange the turnips and onions on a roasting tray. Drizzle with the oil and season well. Roast for 25-30 minutes, turning halfway, until softened and golden.
  2. For the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a screw-top jar. Shake well, then pour over the barley. To serve, add the roasted veg, parsley, hazelnuts and Stilton to the barley; toss to combine. Scatter over the rocket.
