Hearty Salad that can be served either warm or cold. This dish is the ultimate comfort salad in my opinion when served warm since it is gives you filling mouth-fulls of grains and roasted veggies. This is the perfect side dish to serve when you have a vegetarian or vegan (leave the cheese on the side) friend over for dinner since it is hearty enough to be a meal for them.

Ingredients

Salad

  • 4 carrots cut into thick slices
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup farro cooked to package directions
  • 12 oz mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese finely grated

Salad Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon stone ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Cook Farro to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, cut carrots into thick slices. Toss with 2 tsp of olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 20 minutes.
  • Combine all salad dressing ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Shake or whisk to combine.
  • Layer mixed greens, farro, roasted carrots, and parmesan in a bowl. Toss with stone ground mustard vinaigrette right before serving.

Notes

-- VEGAN + DAIRY FREE -- 
  • Sub the honey for agave or just leave it out. Serve the cheese on the side and you've got any vegan friends easily covered!
--OTHER NOTES -- 
  • I buy farro at Trader Joes. It is in the rice/lentil section.
  • Farro is NOT Gluten-Free. You would want to sub this out with lentils or quinoa to make this gluten-free.
