Make the Salad
Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Carefully massage farro in bag to break up any clumps. Tear a small slit in an upper corner of bag to vent. Place upright in microwave and heat, 45 seconds. Remove farro from packaging. Toss or gently mix spring mix, tomatoes, half the farro (use the rest as you please!), and dressing. Top with cheese and crispy onions. Bon appétit!
