Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 1/4 cups dried farro cooked according to package directions
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 medium sized cucumber cut into small chunks (~1/3” cubes)
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1 cup baby tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano chopped

Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 medium sized lemon
  • Zest of 1 medium sized lemon
  • 1/2-1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Cook farro according to package directions. Place in a medium sized bowl.
  • In a large bowl stir together arugula, cucumber, green onions, red onion, tomatoes, feta, dill, mint, parsley, and oregano. NOTE: If you plan on using salad for leftovers, stir arugula into individual salads before serving. The arugula with dressing does not save well.
  • In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Pour over warm farro and mix well. Taste, and add salt or pepper to taste, if needed.
  • Pour farro and vinaigrette into bowl with vegetables and mix well. Again, taste, and if needed, add more salt and pepper.
