A warm roasted vegetable medley over a bed of farro and frisée lettuce with sweet cranberries, crunchy pecans, and pillowy goat cheese make for a healthy, meal prep friendly salad that’s perfect for Autumn and winter.
Roasted Vegetable and Farro Salad with Goat Cheese
Once the temperatures dip and it gets a bit chilly, I want all the warm foods. But after awhile, I crave something a bit lighter, but still warm. Enter: the roasted vegetable salad with grains.
This farro salad combines fluffy frisée lettuce with warm farro for a warm salad that’s light and filling. Roasted beets and carrots have a robust flavor that pairs well with the hearty farro. Pillowy and creamy goat cheese, crunchy pecans, and an apple cider vinegar based dressing make a comforting bowl of vegetables, grains, and salad.
This salad is totally customizable – choose your own variety of roasted veggies (butternut squash, sweet potato, delicata squash) and switch up the nut and the cheese. Try feta and walnuts or some ricotta salata and pine nuts.
If you want more protein, add some roasted turkey or chicken on top! Either way, you’re going to love this salad that truly has it all.
