Miso Sesame Farro Salad

Want to bring something to your Labor Day BBQ that isn't covered in mayonnaise or riddled with bacon bits?

I've got you covered.

Miso Sesame Farro Salad

1 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp miso paste
2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup rice vinegar
6 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp honey

8.8 oz uncooked farro (I used this package from Trader Joe's)
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 cup greens, sliced thinly (I used a kale/spinach combo)
sesame seeds for garnish

1. Whisk first set of ingredients in a bowl or large measuring cup to make the dressing.
2. Cook farro according to package directions. Drain and allow to cool for a bit.
3. Mix cooled farro, vegetables, and dressing in a large bowl.

This is such a tasty and healthy alternative to the usual BBQ fare.

I was so excited to try farro for the first time!  If you haven't tried it yet it's super simple to prepare (at least the bag I got at Trader Joe's was) and has a nice nutty flavor and texture to it.
