Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large pot cook green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer beans with a slotted spoon to a bowl half-filled with ice water to stop cooking; drain and set aside. Meanwhile, finely shred 1 cup of the cheese; cut remaining cheese into bite-size pieces.

  • In a blender combine the vinegar, shallot, salt, and pepper. Add the shredded cheese and olive oil; cover and blend until well-combined and creamy. In a large bowl combine the cooked beans, dressing, cheese pieces, almonds, raisins, and farro. Toss to combine.


Substitute Asiago or Parmesan cheese for the Manchego, if desired.


For 2 cups cooked farro, in a medium saucepan combine 3/4 cup uncooked farro and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. Drain, if necessary.
