Charlie Bird Farro and Arugula Salad
A couple years ago I was in New York City for my birthday and went to this restaurant called Charlie Bird. I had the most memorable grain salad there and just had to recreate it! This salad is hearty from the nutty farro but really fresh and clean with all the herbs. The vinaigrette is simple but delicious which is where Colavita comes in. When using olive oil in a dressing you want to make sure it is high quality oil because you are not cooking it. The flavor, color and texture all come into play. This Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil is smooth, fruity and has the most beautiful yellowish green hue. It emulsifies perfectly with the lemon juice to make this salad pop! I have been making this salad weekly because it keeps well and is so great as a snack, side dish or light lunch. My daughter Sicily even loves it! I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we do!
