This is my new favorite salad – it’s hearty, sweet and crunchy.
1 cup chopped pitted dates
2 cups farro, cooked (see package instructions)
1 cup marcona almonds
1 apple cut into 1/2 chunks
5 cups of crunchy mixed greens
Handful of loosely chopped parsley
Cooked chicken chunks (optional)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Taragon vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 large finely chopped shallot
2 T fig balsamic vinegar
Whisk all ingredients together or use a blender (I prefer to blend).
In a large bowl toss the apples, farro, dates, almonds, and chicken chunks (optional).
Fold in the greens, toss with dressing, add a handful of parsley leafs and season with salt and pepper to taste.
