Farro Salad With Arugula and Pistachio – Recipe 🇮🇹

This healthy salad is loaded with flavor and texture and is the perfect side for grilled fish and meats!

This bright farro salad is absolutely delicious and full of nutrients. The pistachios add a nice crunch and texture! I love serving this as a side with grilled fish or meat. You can sprinkle some cheese like goat or feta on top to add some creaminess if you like!


  • 1 cup farro
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped pistachio
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 thinly sliced radish
  • 2 sliced Roma tomatoes
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Olive oil as needed
  • Optional: Goat cheese or feta cheese as needed


  1. In a pot, pour 2 cups of water, the farro and apple cider with a little salt and bring it to a simmer. Cook until liquid is evaporated and farro is tender (about 30 minutes). Let the farro cool in the fridge for about an hour.
  2. When farro is cool, whisk a 1/2 cup of olive oil with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Add the farro and pistachios. Stir or toss to combine.
  3. Fold in arugula, tomato slices, parsley, radish slices and salt to taste. Sprinkle with cheese if desired. Serve right away.
