This Strawberry Asparagus Farro Salad will instantly brighten your day…or at least your lunch hour. Hearty, healthy, and completely delicious.
Spring is in the air, and the air is ripe for spring salads.
Right now, I can think of no better salad for the season than this Strawberry Asparagus Farro Salad. Studded with crisp greens and crunchy sweet almonds. Drizzled with a tantalizing lemon honey vinaigrette.
If salads could sing, this one would be belting out a solo.
We nosh on fresh green asparagus all year round, but especially during spring. It’s particularly lush and tender during these early warmer months.
Side note: Get thin asparagus over thick ones. The skinny ones are way more tender.
And let’s talk farro. It’s toothsome, chewy, and deliciously hearty. It’s a superhero power food.
This lemon honey vinaigrette is one of my spring faves. It’s bright, zesty, sweet, and tangy all at once. Perfect for pouring all over your favorite greens this time of year.
Forget the solo. How about an entire medley??
Toss together all that goodness…it’s sweet, tangy, salty, and crunchy…everything you want in one single bowl.
Hint: You may want to make extra dressing for future use, because it’s that yummy and it keeps well. Homemade salad dressing is a gazillion times better than anything store bought.
Here’s to spring, singing, and salads. It’s like music in your mouth.
