Farro and Mixed Chicories Salad

Fontina contrasts beautifully against nutty farro and bitter chicories in this hearty salad. Dress it just before serving to ensure the chicories retain their texture.
Servings 4


  • 1 1/4 cup farro
  • 4 cups chopped mixed chicories (try radicchio, treviso, and escarole)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/3 cups coarsely grated fontina
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • Cook farro according to package directions. Drain well and cool.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl and toss well. Serve immediately.
