Greek Farro Salad for One

Pin It

When my husband Bill is out of town and I’m just cooking for me, I always like to make something that he does not care for.   A couple items that are not on his list of favorites include bell peppers and feta cheese.  This salad is one of the recipes I love to make and never tire of it.  It’s a Greek salad that includes farro, garlic, red bell peppers, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and arugula.

As you can see it is colorful, healthy, and very satisfying.  I make the salad, put it in a pretty bowl, and plop in front of the TV and find a show I can binge watch or a movie Bill is not into which usually means “Big Little Lies” on HBO (I’m almost caught up) or the sappy Hallmark Christmas movies, which start next week.

    Greek Salads are one of our favorites. Love this one with the added farro. Will try it out this week. Enjoy your sappy Hallmark Christmas movies, although I can’t believe it is already that time of year again!!
