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.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Wash and dry the fresh produce.

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high.

Quarter the lime.

Peel and small dice the sweet potato.

Cut the broccoli into bite-sized florets.

Cut off and discard the radish ends; thinly slice into rounds.

Peel and mince the shallot.

Stack the tortillas; cut in half, then thinly slice into strips.

Cut off and discard the rind and white pith of the orange; medium dice.

Peel, pit and large dice the avocado. Place in a bowl with the juice of 1 lime wedge to prevent browning; season with salt and pepper.

Crumble the cheese.

Finely chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling the pepper.

Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling the pepper. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven and carefully transfer to the pot of cooked farro. Discard the aluminum foil.
