O Farro Salad


Farro is grown in the U.S. as a specialty grain but is quickly becoming widely cultivated. When cooked to perfection, it is versatile and delightfully chewy. This organic whole grain is our new favorite staple in any hearty salad. When paired with the juicy goodness of tomatoes, O Farro Salad is the ideal side dish for any meal.

O Farro Salad was a vegetarian favorite at the 18th Annual Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival. Farro’s health benefits surpass wheat in protein, minerals, and antioxidants!

Ingredients:

6 cups cooked farro
2 cups diced heirloom tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
1 cup O Meyer Lemon Olive Oil 
1/2 cup O Citrus Champagne Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to taste

Place 3 cups of dry farro in a pot and add 6 cups of water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 30 minutes. Drain off any excess water, and add diced heirloom tomatoes.
To make the vinaigrette, whisk together O Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and O Citrus Champagne Vinegar, salt and pepper for taste.
Combine all ingredients. Serve. Enjoy. It’s that simple.
