Sometimes a cold salad just doesn’t hit the same way when it’s blizzarding outside. In the winter months I find myself wanting to eat salads, but I often skip it because I don’t want to be cold.
This warm farro salad is the answer to your deepest salad wishes for winter. It contains tons of healthy greens your body needs and offers the warmth and substantially your body craves during cold weather. The warm farro bathed in a lemony shallot dressing and tossed with feta is just what the arugula needs to be its most perfect self.
1 c. uncooked farro
2 c. chicken broth
¼ c. olive oil
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 shallot, minced
2 c. arugula
3 oz. feta cheese
Salt and pepper
Cook farro with chicken broth according to package directions. Remove from heat and let the farro cool for about 2-3 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, shallots and salt and pepper to make a dressing. In a large bowl, combine the warm farro, arugula, and dressing. Stir together. Add the feta and stir again. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
