Seasonal Farro Salad Recipe

  • ¹⁄³ cup + 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, quartered
  • 1 small carrot, halved
  • 12 ounces farro (1 ¾ cups)
  • 5 cups water
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of cucumber, diced
  • 1 ½ cup of blanched chilled and sliced sugar snap peas
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
    In a large saucepan, heat two tablespoons of the oil. Add the yellow onion, carrot, and celery. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until barely softened, about five minutes. Add the farro and stir to coat with oil. Add the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the farro is barely tender, about ten minutes. Season with salt. Cover and simmer until the farro is al dente, about ten minutes longer. Drain the farro and discard the onion, carrot, and celery. Let cool completely. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining one-third cup of olive oil with the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the farro, red onion, cucumber, snap peas, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
