Lemon Farro Salad
I love farro.
It is a chewy grain that you can add to soups or salads.
Two cups of farro
Six cups of water
Two packages of Knorr Sason which is a seasoning package with garlic, onion, annatto and coriander.
If you can’t find the seasoning package , you can use one teaspoon salt, one teaspoon garlic powder and onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon annatto and coriander.
Four beef bouillon cubes.
You can use vegetable cubes if you prefer.
Two diced onion
One tablespoon oil
1 1/2 cups of sliced cherry tomatoes
One cup of green pitted olives
12 pepperoni peppers
One diced red pepper.
One cup of diced fresh parsley.
3/4 cup lemon garlic dressing.
Boil six cups of water
Add the spices, bouillon cubes and farro.
Simmer on low for 30 minutes till the farro is cooked but still chewy.
Keep it in the pot and it will absorb all the water.
Saute the onion and red pepper in the oil and season with salt and pepper.
Put the farro in a large bowl and add half the salad dressing.
Add everything else but save the pepperoncini peppers for garnish. Add the rest of the dressing on the top of the salad.
Serve at room temperature.
Sometimes I add black olives, feta cheese and a jalapeno pepper.
My family loves this salad and it is a great make ahead meal.
