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.
