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.
