We’re loving this Strawberry Avocado Farro Salad from registered dietitian Kaleigh McMordie! It uses strawberries in a lunch or side dish that’s so satisfying. Not only are strawberries delicious, there are so many health benefits that strawberries offer. One serving of eight strawberries provides a day’s worth of vitamin C. Paired with whole grains, herbs and avocado, this strawberry salad will be your new favorite way to get in 8 strawberries a day. Try it with grilled chicken or steak for a heartier meal. Enjoy!
