  • 2 cups cooked farro
  • 3 watermelon radishes thinly sliced using a mandoline or sharp knife
  • 1 stalk celery sliced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple diced

For the dressing:


  • Combine the cooked farro, watermelon radishes, celery, and apples in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, orange and lemon juices, honey, shallots, and fresh thyme. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and mix until coated.


  • The prep time for this recipe does not include cooking time for the farro. Cook the farro according to package instructions (1 cup dry=2 cups cooked). Look for quick cooking farro to cut back on prep time. You can substitute barley, bulgur, or quinoa.
  • Serve as a side, or add white beans, chickpeas, hard boiled eggs, or shredded chicken for a complete meal.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can make this salad in advance, but wait to dress it until right before serving.
