Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes. This recipe from Foodista requires balsamic vinegar, pepper, sunflower seeds, and flat leaf parsley. Taking all factors into account, this recipe earns a spoonacular score of 92%, which is spectacular. Parsley-Farro Salad, Pecan Pesto Farro Salad, and Farro & Fresh Mozzarella Salad With Arugula Walnut Pesto are very similar to this recipe.

Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are great choices for Salad. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. One wine you could try is Old Soul Vineyards Chardonnay. It has 4.7 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 15 dollars.

Old Soul Vineyards Chardonnay

This Chardonnay is succulent and crisp. Flavors of pear, tropical fruit and pineapple add to this bright varietal. Floral notes create a well-balanced wine with a full body. Recommended to pair with chicken, salmon, tilapia, duck, pizza, green salads, or pasta.
