Greek Farro Salad with Fresh Herbs



[ad_1]

A hearty and filling lunch dish, this Greek Farro Salad is full of mediterranean flavors and lots of fresh herbs.

Using New Ingredients

Every time Dan (my husband) hears me mention “Farro”, he make the same lame joke about Pharrohs (i.e. King Tut)

He’s really becoming a master in the lame dad joke category.

This month’s The Recipe Redux challenge was to use a new ingredient to create a healthy, delicious dish. Last week I shared my love of this fast cooking farro (insert dad joke here), so I know i wanted to use it in this recipe.

Greek Salad + Tabbouleh’s Love Child

Not only did I combine my new favorite farro, but this recipe is the love child of my two favorite salads – Greek Salad and Tabbouleh.

The same fresh flavors of greek salad like cucumbers, tomato and feta cheese. But with all the herby goodness of tabbouleh. Add in the nutty flavor of farro and you have a hearty salad that is chock full of fresh ingredients.

Perfect for Meal Prep

This Greek Salad Farro makes a great meal prep dish for weekday lunches. Simply make a big batch of farro, chop up all the veggies and herbs and you can all the ingredients needed for a quick, go to lunch.

Top with grilled chicken or shrimp and you have a complete, filling, protein packed meal.

I typically leave the olive oil and lemon juice off the salad if I am prepping in advance and just wait to add these right before eating.
