moroccan salad

If you follow my blog, you know by now that I am an avid salad lover. I enjoy finding new ways to make salads anything but boring. Today’s recipe is no exception. Chewy lentils and ancient farro pair with sweet raisins over kale tossed in a lemony dill dressing in this Moroccan adventure of a salad. It is a great salad/grain 2-for-1 side dish to pair with meat or as a vegetarian entree.
