Gyro Salad - Plant-Based Deliciousness

Got a bunch of veggies in the fridge and not sure how to use them?

This delicious, plant-based salad is a hit year round! You can mix and match the veggies you use based on what is seasonally available (or in your fridge).

Farro, the grain used in this salad, is an ancient grain high in fiber and antioxidants, and a good source of protein (6 grams per 1/4 cup).
