Currant & Greens Farro Salad

Still on my farro kick I had to give another recipe a try. I've also been wanting to add dried currants to something because the little sweet kick and texture change they provide are really intriguing.

This is a really great side dish with lots of good veggies in it.

1/2-3/4 cup peas
1/2 cup quinoa
1  cups farro
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
pinch of salt
1/4 cup Italian dressing
handful arugula
3 small cucumbers; diced
1/4 cup dried currants
1/2 cup feta cheese

1   cook peas in boiling water until done
2   cook farro and quinoa with pepper flakes and salt in water 1" above grains
3   bring to a simmer and reduce heat, cook for 15-20 minutes, al dente
4   drain grains
5   in a large dish mix arugula, currants, cucumber, farro, quinoa and peas
6   drizzle in the Italian dressing and mix
7   top with feta cheese
8   really good if you store it in the fridge and serve chilled
