Happy New Year!
Today we’ll have some good fiber and vitamins with this farro salad. This is a recipe a meal prep friendly. Let's get to it!
2 cups of cooked farro
1 cup cooked garbanzo beans, roasted and seasoned with hot paprika, salt and pepper (un roasted and out of the can chickpeas will work too)
10 cherry tomatoes, halved.
1/4 cup chopped basil, I strongly recommend you to find 80AcreFarms Basil, you'll thank me later :)
2 cups of finely shopped lettuce, also an 80AcreFarms variety will make a difference
1/4 cup goat cheese
A few slices of avocado to garnish
Some micro greens to garnish and add more greenery to the dish
The juice of 1 lemon
The zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 shallot, finely diced
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
Cook farro per packaging instructions and reserve.
While farro is cooling, make the salad dressing by using a whisk to mix all ingredients until you get an emulsion. Let it sit for 5 minutes so the shallots get a little pickled.
Add farro to a large bowl, add rest of salad ingredients and mix. Add dressing and mix again.
Correct your seasoning and serve.
I want to thank 80AcresFarms for sponsoring this post!
Happy and healthy 2023, everyone! Sending lots of love.
