Eating apples this time of year reminds us why eating seasonally is the way to do it. They are juicy, crisp, concentrated, sweet, tart, and never mealy. We're all eating a minimum 2 apples a day as long as they are around!!! Here's #1.
What you need
1 cup farro
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 apples, cored and diced
¼ red onion, minced
½ cup Tessemae's Cracked Pepper
¼ cup fresh mint leaves
¼ cup pine nuts
½ cup crumbled feta cheese, optional
What to do
Tip: The salad will keep up to 2 days, refrigerated.
- Prepare the farro according to package instructions. Or, combine 1 cup farro and 3 cups water in a small saucepan. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the farro is tender but still chewy, about 15 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl to cool slightly.
- While the farro cooks cooks, combine the apples, onion, and cracked pepper. Stir in the faro, mint, pine nuts and feta.
