Here’s a delicious salad using a whole grain that not only tastes good but is good for you! The flavors are refreshing and sweet while the crunchy nuts and farro give it wonderful texture!
Whisk oil, maple syrup, vinegar, sugar, and salt together in a bowl until dressing is smooth.
Cook and stir walnuts in a small skillet over low heat until toasted and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.
Bring chicken broth, farro, oregano, and basil to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat, cover with a lid, and let sit until all the liquid has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Transfer farro to a glass bowl and cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes more.
Mix walnuts, green apples, dried cherries, and parsley into farro. Drizzle dressing over farro mixture and toss to coat; refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
