Summer Salad

As the temperatures are rising I like to eat light and refreshing food and I think you will be looking  for the same so sharing my recipe for Refreshing Summer Salad. This salad will give you  all the summer vibes. It is sweet and savory and you can totally enjoy this as a meal. I love Farro, if you haven’t tried this grain tastes so nutty and it is a good replacement for rice. The roasted beets and the oranges balance each other off so well and the crunch from Arugula adds the right texture. Hope you will enjoy this salad as much as we do.
