A Green Nosh member prepared this salad for one of our gatherings. So refreshing and healthy!
1 ½ cups farro (an ancient grain with nutty flavor; cooks quickly)
1 cup fresh or frozen organic peas
12 ounces grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup red onion, cut into half-moon slices
6 T chopped fresh mint
Original recipe called for ½ cup olive oil (that’s a ton of calories); instead, I’d do the
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tsps Dijon mustard
¼ cup white wine vinegar
1 tsp agave nectar
Cook the farro in boiling water for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain and transfer to a
large bowl to cool. Drop the peas in boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Drain.
Whisk dressing in a small bowl.
Add the peas, tomatoes, onions, and mint to the farro. Remove the garlic from the
dressing and mix into all the ingredients. Pour dressing over the ingredients. Gently stir to mix.
