This salad was all over the place. We subbed Beyond Meat chicken as a vegan option, and HeidiHo cashew cheese for goat cheese. We thought the vegetarian version with asparagus was a little odd, so we adapted the original version, but it still turned out pretty odd. The vinaigrette didn't go with the peaches, and the farro turned into a nasty mush.

Our family tries to have lighter meals but something that is filling. This meal was all that and tasty. I did not add the farro to it but like to try it next time with sunflower seeds or even replace the salad greens with a pasta.

This was really good, Im not a salad fan but I would make this again and again. The almonds bring in that needed crunch that is always missing from salads and the goat cheese is a must! its makes it rich and creamy. I used a poppy seed salad dressing instead of the french vinaigrette.

This dish was amazing! The directions are a little wonky on the veg version (mentions peas but means corn) but I followed it pretty closely. Subbed brown rice for farro, did 1t of dijon vs 2 based on reviews mentioning strong flavor, and added a tsp of bacon fat from the freezer (it lasts forever in there, much like the bacon splatter that keeps on giving months after cooking it) for flavor. I also added some roasted extra-firm tofu for more protein. Absolutely delicious. Seriously, you could put that vinaigrette with basil on styrofoam and I'd eat it! Thanks again for a winner :)
