If you’re into healthy, hearty and greeny recipes, this delicious farro salad is for you!

The ingredients are really easy to assemble. Farro, a chewy wheat with a nutty flavor is super popular these days and can be found in most groceries. As for the greens, I just blended together mint, cilantro and green onions.

The preparation itself is also really easy – cook the farro, blend the greens, and mix them up with your favorite salad ingredients.

I had corns, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber in my pantry so I just used them. Feel free to add bell peppers, cabbage, or even carrots!

Depending on the type of farro i.e. whole, semi-pearled, or pearled, you will need to adjust the cooking time – details below.
