This “Power Salad” is made with yellow split peas and farro.

This recipe first appeared on Eating Made Easy, a blog written by my friend and nutritionist, Amelia Winslow.  Amelia’s blog is full of healthy, delicious recipes, including the month of salads she is featuring in January.  Amelia is my go-to-girl for nutrition advice, as she gives common sense suggestions that fit into my busy, food-loving life.

I was excited to share this “recipe,” as I often create salads like this one when I’m anticipating a busy week.  I mix up all the ingredients on Sunday, parcel the salad out into individual jars, and stick them in the fridge until I need something quick and healthy.  Please don’t be too concerned with following the recipe; use it more as a guide and throw in items that are fresh, in-season, and on hand at your house.  You’ll soon discover what combinations you like best.  If the salad tastes flat, it probably needs more lemon, salt and/or pepper, or a drizzle of olive oil.  If you get stuck, just ask and I would be happy to help you work it out into something delicious!  Read on for my latest mix.
