Asparagus, Pea, and Farro Salad

Beginner

Asparagus Pea and Farro Salad | Appetite for Life

Spring is the perfect time to make this salad because peas and asparagus are at their height of flavor. Mixed with the baby spinach, onions, and feta cheese, you won't be able to get enough.


If you haven't made Farro, this is a great recipe to give it a try. I like to think of it as a cross between rice and barley. It has a nice firm texture that holds up well in this salad.


You cook farro like you would pasta. In this recipe, cook 1 cup of dried Farrow and in about 3ish cups of salted water. You don't have to cover it. Cook it until tender and drain away the excess liquid.


I like to make a batch of Farro and keep it on hand during the week. I add it to soups and salads, and even eat it with a bit of Parmesan cheese for breakfast.


Make sure to check the notes on variation ideas.

About Me

Hi!  I'm Jen

Cooking is a passion passed down from both of my grandmothers to my mother and then to my sister and me.  

Throughout my career, I was always drawn back to food.  I've learned from experienced chefs, apprenticed with professional bakers, and tasted coffee with international experts.

Today I'm sharing those experiences with you.
