Mediterranean Farro Salad

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked and cooled farro
  • 1 cup cubed eggplant, fresh or fried*
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup seeded and diced tomatoes
  • 1 ½ cups seeded and diced cucumber
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup chopped mint
  • ¼ cup chopped dill

*To make fried eggplant cubes: Cut eggplant into ½-inch cubes. Spread cubes on several layers of paper towels and lightly salt. Let sit for about 15 minutes to extract any excess water from the vegetable. Blot cubes dry. Heat ½ inch of oil over medium-high heat in a heavy skillet. Fry eggplant cubes in batches, stirring often to brown all sides. When dark brown, remove eggplant from oil and drain on paper towels. Season with salt, if desired.

Directions

In a large bowl, toss farro with vegetables, lemon juice, olive oil and herbs. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
