Hello — Staying at our Ani’s house last week, we pretty much went through a big bag of sugar snap peas from Costco. So crispy and sweet. And I’ve had them in mind ever since. So I picked up some up at Sprouts for this salad– bright lettuces, sweet sugar snap peas, salty feta all on a base of hearty faro. Simple but satisfying.
SUGAR SNAP PEA & FARRO SALAD
1/2 cup farro
pinch of salt
3 to 4 cups baby lettuces*
1/3 pound sugar snap peas (about 1 cup)
2 tab. feta
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tab. cider vinegar
1 tsp. honey
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
Cook the faro according to the directions on the package. Mine simmered 20 minutes with a cup of water and a pinch of salt. When it’s tender, rinse it under cold water to cool it down.
Layer the lettuce, faro, peas and feta on a plate.
In a container with a tight fitting lid shake together the olive oil, vinegar, honey and salt & pepper until it’s completely blended. Pour it over the salad just before you set it on the table. Fresh and bright!
