Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked farro (2 cups cooked)
  • 2 medium apples, diced
  • 4 cups super greens (greens mix like kale, chard, spinach, etc.)
  • ½ cup toasted pecan halves

Apple Cider Vinaigrette

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or as needed for sweetness
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • tsp salt
  • pinch black pepper or to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the farro according to package instructions or using the pasta method here. Boil a large pot of salted water. Add 1 cup of uncooked farro and boil until al dente, about 30 minutes. Drain well and store in the refrigerator if prepping for later or serve at room temperature. 
  • Add the dressing ingredients to a large bowl and whisk until combined. 
  • Toss the diced apples, pecans, and farro in the vinaigrette until well coated. Add the greens. Plate and serve. 

Notes

Plan Ahead:
If you want to double the vinaigrette recipe to have some for later in the week, add all ingredients to a mason jar, seal, and shake and use half for the salad.
Double the farro you make and freeze the extra for meals later in the month.
