Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw whole grain farro
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ cup dried cherries , coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup finely minced chives or green onions
  • 8 or 10 mint leaves , minced
  • 2 cups cherries , pitted and cut in half
Instructions
  1. Rinse farro. Put in the pressure cooker pot with 3 cups water. Lock the lid in place and cook on high pressure 40 minutes. Quick release the pressure. The grain should be plump and tender, but chewy.
  2. Drain the farro. (If you wish, save the extra liquid for soup stock.) Put the cooked farro in a bowl. Stir in vinegar, lemon juice, oil, salt, dried cherries, chives and mint. Refrigerate until cold. Just before serving, stir in fresh cherries.
