It's "Tasty Tuesday", where every week we bring you new, fresh, local, healthy recipes and food tips. Find out what is in season, and what will keep you fuelled during and after your work outs!
Winter salads are some of my favourites, you get a kick of fruit (be it dried), and nuts for crunch, and the base possibilities are endless. I had some farro grains kicking around and went looking for a recipe to work with.
I combined a few ideas and tweaked the ingredients a bit (and
debated making it a breakfast bowl), and landed with this mixture.
Feel free to substitute the nuts for whatever you have on hand
(walnut might be a good alternative), and regular raisins for
golden, or apricots for the cranberries. This is an easy one to
work with what's in the cupboards.
Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:
There's not much more you can do to this salad to make it even healthier, but you can always pack it with even more good stuff. Allergies? Go nut free. Gluten free? Try quinoa instead of farro. You could even wilt some spinach and stick it in there or throw in a handful of chickpeas!
