NIce for a light lunch or great when served with grilled chicken. I like to make this salad in summer when cherries are in season. Farro is a high fiber whole grain that works well in salads because it doesn't get soggy.
Farro also makes a great breakfast porridge. Enjoy!
1-cup farro, rinsed
2 cups water
½ tsp salt, divided
¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
3T. extra-virgin olive oil
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
2 cups sweet cherries, pitted and halved (about 24 cherries)
½ cup diced ricotta salata or feta cheese
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
3T. finely diced red onion
2T. chopped fresh mint
Serves 6: About ¾ cup serving
