03 Jan EDAMAME, CORN & FARRO SALAD
1 package (12 oz.) frozen shelled edamame – defrosted
1 can of corn, drained
ó cup Craisins
3 chopped scallions
ó cup toasted sesame oil
3 Tablespoons rice vinegar (unseasoned)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup cooked pearled farro
1 squeeze of honey
If you haven’t tried farro yet, I suggest you do. It’s a great grain that’s an alternative to rice or quinoa. This delicious salad can even be a full meal. Add some grilled chicken if you want to kick up the protein a little.
Make farro according to label – note when making farro – farro cooks more like pasta than rice – drain after cooking.
Make Salad: In a large bowl mix all ingredients. Best if made at least an hour ahead to allow flavors to meld.
