Farro Salad with Tomatoes and Herbs ala GiadaSubmitted by: CALIDREAMER76
IntroductionBeing Giada's recipe I'm not sharing except with you Kathryn.
The only thing I changed was she had 2 teaspoons of salt, I used one and it was good. She said a pound of tomatoes - I didn't really count but put in 8 - looks right. Being Giada's recipe I'm not sharing except with you Kathryn.
The only thing I changed was she had 2 teaspoons of salt, I used one and it was good. She said a pound of tomatoes - I didn't really count but put in 8 - looks right.
10 oz Farro, (about 1.5 cup)
4 cups of Water
1 tsp Salt
1 pound Tomatoes (approx.8 Italian tomato) chopped &
1/2 large sweet Onion chopped
1/4 cup Fresh Chives chopped
1/4 cup Fresh Italian Parsley
1 clove Garlic minced
2 T Balsamic Vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup Olive Oil
In the mean time chop your tomatoes, onion and herbs. Add to the farro once cooled.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, vinegar, pepper and olive oil (she had salt in the directions here, which I missed and it tasted just fine without). Add the vinaigrette to the salad and toss to coat.
The salad can be refrigerated over night. Bring to room temperature before serving.
This makes 8 cups - using it as a side I figured 16 half cup servings - just enough for a nice taste without too many calories.

Went to Uno pizza recently and they offered this with cucumber as an appetizer. I ordered it with some feta on it and ended up having a second order as my meal. I'll be making this recipe for dinner this week. - 6/13/11
