This salad is inspired by Charoset (ka-ROW-set), a chopped apple and walnut dish that is traditionally served during Passover Seder. You can substitute the walnuts for pistachios or pecans, or make it nut-free. The crushed matzo adds a nice crunch, but if you don’t have it, and aren’t making this dish kosher for Passover, you can add croutons or lightly crushed crackers.
Ingredient: baby spinach
Farro is an ancient grain that is a good source of fiber and plant-based proteins. Chewier than rice, it holds up in salads and soups. This herby salad is great for a cool summer meal, and can be a star at the next potluck!
Pesto gets a powerful boost of nutrition by adding beans, avocado, and spinach to the sauce.
