Sesame Lime Garlic Farro Salad


Don’t be afraid to try quinoa’s cousin, the up-and-coming farro grain that’s really been gaining popularity. Enjoy it served in a salad, like this Asian version, or prepared warm as a basic side dish. Either way, I’m sure you’ll be adding this superfood to your recipe rotation!


1. Rinse farro in cold water and drain. Place in a medium-sized pot and add salt and enough water to cover.
2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 20–30 minutes until soft but still chewy. Drain off any excess water and fluff gently with a fork. Set aside to cool.
3. In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients aside from the peanuts. Whisk dressing ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour on top, mixing well. Refrigerate for at least one to two hours before serving, mixing once or twice, to allow flavors to blend.
4. Add honey-roasted peanuts right before serving and toss to combine. Alternatively, plate the salad as pictured here and allow each guest to help themselves to the veggies they like!
