Apple Farro Salad

Hello, dear readers!  Welcome back.

It's been hot here in northern Nevada, not melting trash can hot, but we've already had a few days at 100F.  When it's warm out, we tend to cook and eat outdoors. Grilling, and now smoking with hubby's birthday present (a Camp Chef Woodwind) has been our recent favorite cooking method.


Since you have to balance out the hot with something cool, I made this refreshing and simple farro salad to go with dinner one night. We ate outdoors al fresco and the fresh air makes everything taste better!

Ingredients
2 cups farro
1 apple, peeled and diced
3 green onions, whites only chopped
1/4 cup parsley chopped
juice of one tangelo or orange, freshly squeezed
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Method
1. Boil the farro in a large pot of water for about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.


2. Heat the olive oil in a small pan.  Saute the onion until soft. Add the apple and cook about another 5 minutes or until softened.

3. Place farro in a large bowl.  Add cooked onion and apple mixture.  Add the other ingredients and toss everything together. Serve warm or cool.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my post. See you again soon!
