  • 8 ounces quick-cooking farro (I used Trader Joe's 10-minute farro)
  • 3 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 3 cups diced zucchini
  • ¾ tsp salt, divided
  • 1 lb 41-50 ct. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • 3 tsp. dijon mustard
  • ½ cup roughly chopped basil
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped chives
  • 3 Tlbs. olive oil
  1. Add farro to a medium pot. Fill with water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until farro is cooked, about 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. While farro cooks, add olive oil to a large non-stick skillet. Turn flame on to a medium-high heat. Add zucchini, season with ½ tsp salt. Cook until slightly softened, about 2-3 minutes. Season shrimp with remaining ¼ tsp. salt. Add shrimp and garlic to pan, sauté until shrimp is pink, zucchini is soft, and garlic is soft, another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add spinach, zucchini, garlic, and shrimp to warm farro. Pour vinaigrette on top. Toss until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  1. Add lemon juice, mustard, basil, chives, and salt to the bottom of blender. Blend until pureed, scraping down sides as needed. With the mixer on, slowly drizzle in olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
