Serves: 4


  • 1 packet Trader Joe's 10-Minute Farro (or 1 1/2 cups raw farro)
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 head of black garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 4 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate vinegar (or other fruity vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  1. Cook farro according to package directions. (If you're using raw farro, cook it however you do that — I've only used the quick-cooking kind!)
  2. Warm a spoonful of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add diced sweet potato and cook until soft and slightly browned.
  3. Whisk dressing ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Combine farro, sweet potato, garlic, walnuts, and dressing in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If salad is too dry for your taste, add a splash of olive oil and stir.
