(Serves 2–4)


2 cups cauliflower, chopped
½ cup farro, uncooked
2 cups packed fresh spinach, chopped
1 apple, chopped in bite-size pieces
1 avocado, peeled and cut into small pieces
½ cup walnuts, chopped
Goat cheese, crumbled


Toss cauliflower on a sheet pan with olive oil and sea salt and cook in a 400°F oven for about 25 minutes, until crispy and golden on the edges.

Combine farro in a pot with 1 cup of water. Bring to a low boil and cook until done, about 20 minutes. The grains should be tender but not mushy. Drain any excess water.

Combine all ingredients, except goat cheese, in a large serving bowl and toss with honey-mustard dressing. Sprinkle goat cheese on top and serve.
