1 Cook the farro

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly.

2 Make the salad & serve your dish

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter, core, and thinly slice the pear. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Roughly chop the peppers and pistachios. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl, straining out the seeds. Add the chopped shallot and honey (kneading the packet before opening); season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. Slowly whisk in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Add the cooked farro, sliced pear, and arugula; season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Serve the salad garnished with chopped peppers, chopped pistachios, and cheese (crumbling before adding). Enjoy!
