  • 8 ounces uncooked Farro
  • 1 Sunkist California Star Ruby Grapefruit, segmented
  • 2 Sunkist Valencia oranges, segmented
  • 1/4 cup feta crumbles
  • 1/8 cup fresh mint, torn
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed Valencia orange juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Cook the farro according to package directions until al dente; then set aside to cool.
  2. Place the farro in a large bowl and add in the grapefruit segments, orange segments, feta crumbles and mint.
