1cup Organic Pearled Farro
8-10Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes, halved
few sprigsParsley, coarsly chopped
2cupsSalad greensany kind
1teaspoonFeta cheese (use any vegan cheese for vegan version)
Heat water with some salt. Add farro when water boils, and boil it till it's el dente' - chewy in texture. Do not over cook. The cooking time depends upon the variety of farro you use. The one I used in this recipe did not take too long to cook.
Remove from heat and drain. It's better to drain all the water content before adding it to the salad.
Meanwhile, chop the heirloom cherry tomatoes in halves. Prepare the greens.
Prepare the dressing by whisking the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Make a bed of farro on a salad plate. Add the greens and tomatoes. Top it with parsley and feta cheese. Serve with the dressing on the side.Enjoy!
