Mediterranean Farro Lettuce

Farro is one of my favorite grains, and it’s a great grain to try if you’re already bored with brown rice or quinoa. This Mediterranean Farro salad can be served cold or at room temperature and will be perfect for a barbecue or BBQ this summer.

Farro is an ancient Italian grain that has become quite popular in the US and across Europe over the past decade. It is an excellent source of fiber, protein and iron with a nutty flavor and chewy texture. It’s great in salads, side dishes and even soups. Pears are just as easy to cook as pasta boiled and only take about 15-20 minutes. If you have never eaten farro, I highly recommend you to try it !!

What to eat with Farro Salad:

This Mediterranean farro salad is a great treat for any summer barbecue. Serve it with grilled chicken kabobs or lamb chops. You can also add some grilled chicken or a steak to your Farro to turn it into a cereal bowl.

Variations:

  • If you can’t find farro, you can use barley, quinoa, whole wheat, brown rice, or even whole grain corn pasta instead.
  • If you don’t like feta, skip it or fill it in goat cheese.
  • Add veggies like grilled red peppers or chopped spinach.
  • Exchange sun-dried tomatoes for cherry tomatoes or fresh grape tomatoes.
  • Replace mint or parsley with basil.
  • For more flavor, add minced fresh garlic or kalamata olives.
