Salads are a great way to enjoy fresh fruits and veggies, but there’s another ingredient you should be adding: farro! Considered a healthier version of rice, this ancient grain has a unique, nutty flavor and is packed with protein. When paired with arugula and grapefruit, farro helps turn a bright and refreshing salad into a meal that’s totally satisfying from first bite to last. Top it with a homemade grapefruit vinaigrette and enjoy a creative culinary mix of sweet, tart, nutty and crisp.

In medium pot, bring farro and broth to boil; reduce heat to just above simmer; cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain.
In small frying pan, sauté shallots and garlic in oil until bubbling. Lower heat to low-medium; continue cooking until crispy. Place shallots on paper towel. Reserve oil.
On sheet pan, arrange grapefruit; sprinkle coconut sugar on top. Broil three minutes.
Whisk together shallot, garlic oil and ingredients for dressing.
