We love farro around here, with its slightly nutty texture and wholesome goodness. It keeps you full and satisfied a bit longer than rice, and I think farro is more versatile in recipes, like this delicious farro salad. One of my other favorites is my Farro with Vegetables.

You'll need these ingredients

  • cooked farro
  • garbanzo beans
  • arugula
  • assorted fresh herbs - I like basil, parsley, mint, rosemary
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • golden raisins
  • olive oil

How to make farro salad

This farro salad requires a bit of hands-on prep work with chopping the herbs and sun-dried tomatoes, but otherwise it's easy and you'll have it ready in a jiffy.

  1. Add cooked farro and garbanzo beans to a bowl.
  2. Stir in coarsely chopped arugula.
  3. Add chopped fresh herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, golden raisins, and stir gently.
  4. Stir in a little olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Quick tips

  • Farro salad is a great make ahead dish. You can keep it in the refrigerator for several days.
  • Not a freezer friendly recipe though. The fresh herbs would lose their punch and the texture would not be as good.
  • We love this farro salad when we go on vacation! It's a great packing salad for quick lunches.
  • I use canned garbanzo beans, but you could cook your own by following this tutorial.
