Farro Salad
inspiration from Giada's Feel Good Food -- smoked paprika whole wheat cous cous salad
- 4-5 T apple cider vinegar
- 2-3 tsp paprika
- 0.5 tsp aleppo pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- .25 tsp pepper
- about .5 tsp honey
- 1 apple, diced- tossed with 1/2 meyer lemon juice and T apple cider vinegar
- 3 small fennel bulbs- bulb only, sliced
- 1/3 c parsley, chopped
- 3 stalks celery, sliced
- 1 watermelon radish, julienned
- 2 cups cooked farro
- 1/2 package tomatoes, halved


  1. I'm stalking your cooking right now. Obsessed with farro... how did you like this salad!? Looks really good.

    1. I really liked it-- was filling and felt super healthy-- the dressing was fantastic-- I really need to make this again soon. One of those things that you eat and feel awesome and powerful afterward (I imagine a farro-version of Popeye eating spinach)

    2. I should have mentioned-- I used California Sweet Paprika, not smoked

  2. Made this 3/3/14: Used regular fennel- not as good. Pehaps just too much. Should slice more thinly, and maybe chop into small pieces. Left out radish, should have kept- added a nice light crunch.
