For the salad

  • 2 cups cooked farro
  • 1.5 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 small head radicchio thinly sliced, about 4 cups
  • 2 valencia oranges peeled and segmented
  • cup walnuts roughly chopped
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint

For the dressing


  • Cook the farro according to package instructions to yield 2 cups.
  • Cook and shred the chicken. To boil chicken breasts, add them to a large pot and add enough water (or chicken broth) to cover them. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a rapid simmer. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Remove chicken breasts from the pot. Shred with two forks on a cutting board.
  • While the chicken and farro are cooking, prep the other ingredients. Slice the radicchio, prep the oranges, chop the walnuts and mint, and crumble the feta. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, olive oil, honey, Dijon, apple cider vinegar, and salt.
  • Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing until coated. Enjoy!

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days. Add a squeeze of orange or lemon juice before serving to freshen up the salad if desired.
  • Prep the farro and chicken in advance to save time.
  • If you want this salad to be vegetarian, omit the chicken and add a can of beans.
