this week’s dinner idea is a party favorite of ours! we actually just served this over the 4th and it was such a huge hit everyone went home with a copy of the recipe ! win!

what i love most about this meal is its versatility-it works just as wonderfully as a side dish for a big party as it does a weeknight dinner. the combo of fresh mint and lemon scream summer and, since the farro is mixed in while warm, it melts the feta just enough to make the whole dish seem more like a decedent pasta than a salad. double win! if we’re feeling extra hungry (and we almost always are), i’ll usually grill up some chicken or shrimp to go along with it. we also like to mix in a bit of peppery arugula along with the kale for an extra bite. yum!

quick tip: if you’re short on time, i’d definitely recommend an instant farro…just boil 10 minutes and done!

happy eating!
