  • First, boil water in a medium pot; after it is fully boiled, add the farro grains. Salt the water with 1 teaspoon.  Cook for about 15 minutes. Afterwards, let the farro cool down.

  • Take the following vegetables: red onion, broccoli, cucumber, and radish. Chop them, and after that, mince a few garlic cloves. 

  • This salad requires a fantastic sauce. It is quite simple to make. Put the following ingredients in a blender: egg yolk, lemon juice, apple vinegar, mustard, minced garlic, and 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Mix until the texture is creamy and distinct.

  • It is time to combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. First, take the broccoli and break it into medium-sized pieces. Season it with one grated garlic clove, and let it marinate for 5 minutes. The following step is to put the rest of the ingredients in the bowl: onions, chopped cucumber, dried tomatoes, and of course the prepared farro. Do not forget to add the sauce! Now it is time to mix the salad and enjoy its delicate taste.


  • How the farro looks when it is fully cooked? Farro looks similar to barley when cooked, but it has a chewier consistency.

  • Some might not prefer dried tomatoes; therefore, instead of them, you can use fresh tomatoes. When putting them in the salad, slice them.

  • Mint leaves can be substituted by parsley, rosemary, or tarragon. When using these herbs, chop their leaves and add them to the salad.

Bon Appetit!
