Our favorite Farro Salad! Made with nutritious farro, fresh kale, flavorful dried cherries, sweet peaches, tangy feta and a vibrant dressing. When peaches aren't in season try this salad with apples instead.
+ 1 Tbsp orange zest
divided, and black pepper to taste
chop into bite size pieces if leaves are larger
dried montmorency cherries (sweetened variety),
crumbled feta cheese
white wine vinegar
In a medium saucepan bring 2 1/2 cups water, farro, orange juice, orange zest and 1/2 tsp salt to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat to low and let simmer until farro is tender, about 30 minutes (if needed you can add a little more water if it all evaporates off before its finished). Drain then let cool.**
Meanwhile make the dressing and prep salad ingredients. In a mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil white wine vinegar, honey, dijon, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Chill until ready to use.
To prepare the salad add the salad ingredients to a large bowl including cooled farro, kale, cherries, peaches, walnuts, feta, parsley and red onion.
Whisk dressing again to emulsify then pour over salad. Toss to evenly coat. Taste for more salt if needed, then serve right away.
*When peaches aren't in season an apple can be substituted.
**To quick cool the farro you can spread on a large plate and freeze about 15 minutes.
