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team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

If you have roughly 45 minutes to spend in the kitchen, Meyer Lemon Scented Farro and Asparagus Salad might be a great dairy free and lacto ovo vegetarian recipe to try. For $1.79 per serving, this recipe covers 14% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. One serving contains 222 calories, 5g of protein, and 12g of fat. This recipe serves 6. It works well as a hor d'oeuvre. This recipe from Foodista has 2 fans. If you have salt and pepper, meyer lemon vinagirette, lemon zest, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 83%. This score is amazing. Meyer Lemon Grain Salad With Asparagus, Almonds And Goat Cheese, Grilled Asparagus Lemon-Thyme Farro Salad, and Chopped Kale Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette (with an easy Meyer lemon substitute) are very similar to this recipe.

Chardonnay, Alcoholic Drink, and White Wine are my top picks 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 Game of Thrones Chardonnay. It has 4.7 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 20 dollars.

Game of Thrones Chardonnay

Enticing aromas of stone fruit and white blossoms lead to a rich, creamy palate of peaches, apricots, tangerine, Meyer lemon, baking spices and honey, balanced by mouth-watering acidity. A touch of oak on the lingering finish.

Instructions

PREPARATION Cook farro according to package directions. (Note: My package said to soak at least 8 hours, however, I did not have time for this and just cooked it for about 1/2 hour and it turned out great!) During the last few minutes of cooking, add in frozen peas. Drain farro and peas. Add in the lemon zest and juice and toss. Meanwhile, cut asparagus into 3/5 inch pieces and steam until still crispy, but not hard. Add to bowl of farro and peas. On medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil In a large saut pan. Add in sliced shallots and cook until soft. Add sliced crimini mushrooms and saut until browned and soft. Add to bowl with rest of salad. Whisk together vinaigrette ingredients. Serve in a bowl, drizzle vinaigrette on top, and sprinkle macadamia nuts on top.
