Dried Apricot, Prune, Cranberry, Almond, Farro Salad

3 years ago

 

 

I love summer time salad of any style.  I combine different flavors to create deliciously tasty salads to eat along or with a summer barbeque.  Farro is a nutty Italian whole grain that is now widely available in all types of grocery stores.  I bought a large bag of organic Farro at Costco.  Farro is a great base for this salad which I added dried fruits, almonds and chick peas, tossed with an orange base dressing loaded with great spices. For a main dish I serve over spring greens.

 

Dried Fruit, Almond and Farro Salad

 

4 cups vegetable broth

2 cups Farro

1 can(15.5 oz) chick peas, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup orange juice

2 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon tumeric

1 cup slice almonds

1/2 cup chopped dried Apricots

1/2 cup chopped dried prunes

1/2 cup dried cranberries

 

Put 4 cups vegetable broth in large sauce pan bring to a boil. Add Farro lower heat to medium simmering for 30-35 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Place in large bowl to cool. 

In a bowl combine orange juice, oil, spices poor over Farro tossing to combine.  Add almonds, apricots, prunes and cranberries.  Chill.  Can be made a day ahead.
