What’s in The Chopped Greek Salad with Farro?
Lot’s of good things: farro (of course), chopped romaine, diced cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, fresh mint, sweet red onion and salty feta cheese.
What is Farro?
If you aren’t familiar with farro, let me make an introduction. Farro is an ancient wheat grain that is high in protein, fiber and nutrients like magnesium and iron. Farro is as easy to cook as rice and has a delicious nutty flavor which works beautifully with all the other ingredients in this salad.
The Lemon Vinaigrette:
We keep the dressing on this salad super simple, just olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey and a little sea salt and pepper!
What to Serve it With:
I love this salad served it alongside steak, my Hummus Trio with Pita or these fabulous Greek Chicken Kabobs!
