Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the farro

In a small sauce pot, combine the farro and 1½ cups [3 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the grains are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain, return to the pot, and set aside. While the farro is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients. 

2

Prep the remaining ingredients; toast the pine nuts

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Coarsely chop the dill.

In a dry medium frying pan over medium-low heat, toast the pine nuts, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.

3

Assemble the salad

In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, romaine, dill, pine nuts, kale, and farro. Add half the Caesar dressing and toss to coat (set aside the remaining dressing for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the salad to individual bowls and serve the remaining dressing on the side.
