Dried Fruit and Almond Farro Salad recipe


I love any summer time salad and this Farro Salad recipe grabs the flavors of dried apricots, cranberries, and prunes in a light and fun salad.

By combining different flavors, you can create deliciously tasty salads to eat along with a summer barbecue.  Farro is a nutty Italian whole grain that is now widely available in grocery stores.  I bought a large bag of organic Farro at Costco.

It’s a great base for this salad and I added dried fruits, almonds, and chick peas. I then tossed it with an orange dressing loaded with great spices. For a main dish I serve over spring greens.

Put four cups of vegetable broth in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.

Add Farro to the pan and lower heat to medium, simmering for 30-35 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Place in large bowl to cool.

In a bowl combine orange juice, oil, and spices. Pour over Farro, tossing to combine.  Add almonds, apricots, prunes, and cranberries.  Chill.  Can be made a day ahead.
