Our satisfying, Mexican-inspired farro salad showcases tender sweet potato and broccoli roasted with spicy chipotle in adobo—infusing the whole dish with its smoky flavor. Bites of juicy cara cara orange and crisp radishes (marinated with a touch of agave nectar and lime juice) lend welcome brightness, while creamy avocado and light, crumbly queso fresco help tame the pepper’s heat. Oven-toasted tortilla strips make for the perfect, crunchy mix-in.
