Delicious! Even though I had never used farro before, I saw this recipe and knew I had to make it! I only used 1 tsp of sugar and that was plenty sweet for me. I might even leave out the sugar next time. I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts bc that's what i had on hand and it turned out really good. I didn't have to use all the dressing either - I probably ended up using 2/3 of it and the salad was plenty moist with that amount. I will use the remainder of the dressing for something else. This one's a keeper!
Thx for that lovely picture LilSnoo, I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe; yes the vinaigrette makes plenty so add what you need and there's extra if you are wanting to make it a day ahead, it tends to absorb some. ~ One thing was left out of the directions, after mixing the vinaigrette, you want to put it in the fridge to chill. Also in my notes is says you can switch the apples for celery, but I prefer it with both added. Enjoy! :)
Fabulous side dish. It's sweet, but not over the top - well balanced. Great colors and textures with the farro, apples and nuts. I've been looking for more farro recipes and this one is a keeper! I substituted pine nuts (since I dislike walnuts). You can use a little less broth and there is also plenty of extra vinaigrette - so you can cut back there or just serve with a slotted spoon.
