Italian Farro Salad
It is such a delicious grain, somewhere between barley and rice in texture, and it soaks up any flavor you give it! If you haven’t tried it, I totally encourage it! When I buy it, I buy more than one – it can be somewhat hard to find at my local grocery store, so sometimes I opt to buy it online. My favorite brand is Nature’s Earthly Choice Organic Farro, and I usually opt for the 6-pack!Truthfully, you could throw in anything you like with cooked Farro, toss with a little vinaigrette and it’s sure to be delicious. It’s so great to have something scrumptious and healthy to grab and eat in the fridge, too!
Without further ado…
Fresh basil, chiffonnade (aka cut into strips), optional garnish*I use whichever I have on-hand.
Today it was dried cranberries — you want that sweet, chewy bite
Pressure Cooker, I have the IP-60DUO 7-in-1 Instant Pot
Cook Farro – you can use my Pressure Cooker method, or cook the farro on your stovetop according to the Farro’s package directions.
Allow Farro to cool slightly while you prepare salad ingredients.
Add Farro and salad ingredients to mixing bowl. Mix together.
That is it!
Chill for at least an hour, then ENJOY. This can also be eaten warm, but chilling it helps develop more flavor.
Confession: I didn’t wait… I ate a bowl right away!
