When the weather gets warmer, our body naturally craves cooling, lighter foods. This vegetarian salad is perfect as a side dish to a meal and is a hit at any party. You can also make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge; since there are no lettuce leaves, you don’t have to worry about anything getting soggy.
The salad has complex carbs and fiber from the farro, natural sugars from the heirloom tomatoes, a high water content from the cucumbers, healthy fats from the avocado, and protein from the chickpeas and feta cheese.
