  • 1 cup farro
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups arugala
  • 1 cup parsley leaves, torn
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced radish
  • ½ cup creamy avocado lemon dressing


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring farro, water, apple cider, salt, and bay leaves to a boil and lower heat to a simmer. Simmer until farro is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
  2. Let farro cool, then discard bay leaves and drain any leftover water from cooking.
  3. While farro cooks, prepare the remaining salad ingredients as well as the Avocado Lemon Dressing. In a bowl, combine farro and Parmesan and mix well. Mix in 1/2 cup dressing.
  4. Just before serving, fold in 1/2 of the arugula, parsley and radish. Mix together the remaining arugula, parsley and radish and divide between 6 plates.
  5. Divide farro mixture between the six plates and serve immediately.
