This salad is fantastic. I did not have time to do the 12 hour soak. I soaked the farro for 2 hours, the recipe turned out just fine.
Great! I served this at my card club last week and it was the hit of the night! I made it with barley instead of farro and added tangerine sections for color. Everyone wanted the recipe!
I used jasmine rice in place of farro. It needed a tsp or so of olive oil to keep the rice from sticking together, but it had a great look and flavor. The next time I threw in a few black beans for more protein, and that worked, as well. Great recipe!
This was wonderful. I wish I could underline and bold that word. I made this for a family picnic. Yes, I did modify but it doesn't substantially alter the recipe. I only had Quinoa on hand so that replaced Farro. Truthfully, I'm betting cooked wheat berries would work too. The other modification was the walnuts. I replaced them with toasted sliced almonds due to a family food allergy. Also, I used a Red Apple Balsamic. I'm sure any type of good quality balsamic would be great. I forgot to take a picture but I will next time I make it. This is a keeper.
Loved it! I wasn't sure about the cranberries, but love the little sweetness it adds. I also didn't have time to soak for 12 hours, but it didn't seem to affect the delicousness! I skipped the parm cheese, and instead sprinkled a little goat cheese on...so so good!
very lovely and clean flavors, great for summer. I used manchego in place of parmesean and a garlic herb balsamic vinaigrette
I was a bit hesitant about this, having never cooked or used farro. However, it was really delicious! The chewy, nutty texture of the cooked farro was wonderful. I plan to try it in other dishes. One caution: 2 cups of uncooked faro makes a whole lot of cooked grain! So be sure to check servings for this recipe - I wasn't serving a crowd and could have cut the recipe in half. As other reviewers did, substituted almonds for walnuts and as another Easter dish had asparagus, used haricots vert for the green veggie. Surprisingly good. Will share with others.
This was really good.
