Here's my recommendation: eat outside. Grill up some burgers. Make some salads and sides. Cut up fresh fruit. And finish it all off with a simple, tasty dessert.
1 c. cooked farro
1 1/2 c. cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 red onion
1/2 cucumber, peeled and cut into small pieces
1/4 c. finely chopped parsley
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
2. In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and salt & pepper.
3. Pour dressing over farro mixture. You can make this salad the night before and store in the refrigerator.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
