chicken and farro

This simple salad features farro, a nutty-flavored grain commonly used in place of rice.  Farro is also a good source of fiber, magnesium, and B vitamins. Feel free to substitute quinoa or your favorite grain for the farro, or substitute salmon for chicken to increase heart healthy omega-3 fats.

 

 

Ingredients

1 cup Farro

Grilled or roasted chicken

Spinach (or your favorite greens)

½ cup Raspberries

¼ cup Walnuts

Lemon-Dill Dressing (recipe makes ¼ cup, enough for two salads)
