For the farro salad

  • 2 cups farro
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled

For the dressing

  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Cook your farro according to package directions, using either water - or for a little added flavor, vegetable broth. Drain and set aside to cool. 
  • Meanwhile, you can cut up your apple and make the dressing. In a small bowl, mix the honey and Dijon until well-combined. Add the vinegar and olive oil and whisk until slightly thickened. Taste and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Combine the farro, arugula, diced apple, and feta in a serving bowl. Drizzle with dressing* and toss to combine.


*You may want to start with a little dressing at a time, until you have it to your liking. We like a lot of dressing, so I use it all, but some prefer less.
