Chilled Farro Salad with Sweet Chili Lime Sauce

Serves 4

1 cup farro, uncooked

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1/2 large red onion, diced

1 cup of corn, fresh off the cob

1/2 cup pea shoots, chopped

1/4 cup of sweet chili sauce (from Trader Joe’s)

Juice from half a lime

*If you have fresh cilantro on hand I’d highly suggest adding some to the mix!

Start by cooking the farro to package directions.

While farro is cooking, chop and dice the bell pepper, red onion, and peashoots and add to a large mixing bowl with the corn.

When the farro is done cooking, add it to the bowl of chopped veggies and mix.

In a small bowl stir together the sweet chili sauce and lime juice. Then pour over the farro salad and mix until coated.

Place in the fridge for about an hour or two to chill, and enjoy!

Pistachios and raisins are a lovely snack combo,
