Summer Arugula Salad

I'll say it once and I'll say it again...I LOVE ARUGULA. I could eat it every day! This salad is fresh and brings a few textures together to make it a delicious entree.

I've never been a huge "eat salad every day" fan so I'm always trying to find new ways to make salad interesting and full of flavor. This is also a great salad to pre-pack for your lunches all week.

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Salad
1 Cup farro
1 Cup water
1 Bag arugula, about 4-5 cups
24 Red grapes, halved
Parmesan
Salt & Pepper

Dressing
1 Lemon
3/4 Cup olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of farro to a pot. Bring to a boil, and let simmer off the heat about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl juice the whole lemon and discard the seeds. Stream in the olive oil and beat the mixture with a whisk. Salt and pepper to taste. Make sure you taste as you go because you may want to add more olive oil or lemon depending on your preference.

Assemble the salad with arugula on the bottom, grapes, farrow (fluff in pot with a fork), and toss with dressing. Then sprinkle bits of parmesan on top.

DONE! So easy, healthy and packed with a ton of flavor!
