Cherry Almond Farro Salad

All you need:

  • 1 cup farro, rinsed

  • 2 cups water

  • ½ tsp. salt, divided

  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar

  • 3 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select extra virgin olive oil

  • ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee fresh ground pepper

  • 2 cups sweet cherries, pitted and halved

  • ½ cup diced ricotta salata, or Hy-Vee select feta cheese

  • ¼ cup Hy-Vee slivered almonds, toasted

  • 3 tbsp. finely diced red onion

  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh mint

All you do:

  1. Combine farro, water and ¼ tsp salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook until the farro is tender, 20-30 minutes. Drain any remaining liquid and fluff with a fork. Spread the farro out on a large rimmed baking sheet to cool for 10 minutes.
  2.  Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, oil, pepper and the remaining ¼ tsp salt in a large bowl. Add cherries, ricotta salata (or feta), almonds, onion, mint and the farro. Gently stir to combine.
