Description

Flavorful, fresh, and so good for you! This fresh chopped salad with farmers market veggies and hearty farro makes the perfect summer side.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup raw farro*
  • 3 ears of corn, husk and silk removed
  • 1 seedless cucumber, chopped
  • 1 large (any color) bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta**

Honey Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest (from about 2 lemons)
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 small garlic clove, pressed
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook farro according to package directions. Cool completely.
  2. Cook corn in boiling water, on the stovetop, for 5 minutes. Cool just enough to handle, and then cut the kernels off the cob. You should have approximately 2 cups of corn.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooked farro, corn, cucumbers, bell pepper, tomatoes, herbs, and feta. Set aside.
  4. Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to combine. Taste for salt and pepper.
  6. Cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Give the salad a good stir before serving.

Notes

*Farro can be found in the same section of the grocery store as the rice
**I used tomato + basil flavored feta but traditional feta can be substituted
