farro salad w. tomatoes + herbs

May 25, 2013 § 4 Comments


whipped up this tasty little bowl for a light lunch today since i had leftover farro on hand. i love the slightly chewy texture of farro, and barley which is another favorite of mine.

ingredients: {one serving}
• 1 cup or so cooked farro
• handful of sweet cherry tomatoes, halved
• finely diced sweet onion, a sprinkle
• 3 or 4 kalamata olives, chopped
• 1 small garlic clove, finely minced
• 4 chives snipped
• parmigiano-reggiano cheese, a few little chunks
• 2 Tablespoons or so balsamic vinegar
• extra-virgin olive oil
• real maple syrup, just a drizzle
• salt + cracked black pepper

to do:
reheat the farro until warm. add the cherry tomatoes, sweet onion, kalamata olives and parmigiano-reggiano cheese atop. to make the dressing, whisk the garlic, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and extra-virgin olive oil together. add the dressing over the farro and toss gently to coat. season to taste with salt and pepper, finishing off with a garnishing of chives. serve immediately and enjoy!
