A healthy fall salad for you! Yeah! Beets and avocado and spiced chickpeas and mint- it’s Apple Beet Farro Salad with Crispy Chickpeas!
I know, I got pretty excited for a salad but this isn’t just any salad! With lots of Rosh Hashanah flavors (I’m taking beets, apples, honey vinaigrette) and fall flavors (spiced crunchy chickpeas, nutty farro, good for all seasons avocado), it’s great for your holiday dinner. Oh heck, a Tuesday.
What are you doing for Rosh Hashanah? It’s almost here! Usually, I do some friend get-together of sorts, but this year I live near my brother so I get to be with family! And I’m so excited about it. I love my friends, but nothing beats family, right? Can’t wait!
Except for this salad. This salad beats family (kidding, sort of). But the flavor combination is on like honey on apples. When Healthline asked me to come up with a healthy Rosh Hashanah recipe, my wheels started turning.
I knew there would be apples and honey, of course, and beets for another Rosh Hashanah symbol. And I love a hearty grain salad, so farro came on board. And peppery arugula is just so good with sweet things. I love a lot of texture in a salad, so crunchy chickpeas were a must.
And here we are! You can make the farro and dressing ahead of time, so it all comes together pretty darn quickly. Hope 5778 is the best Jew year yet! <3 Get the full recipe and some of my other favorite Rosh Hashanah ideas over on Healthline!
