Minim Salad for Tu B’shvat

I love TuB’shvat as it represents re-birth of the garden as we head towards spring. There is no halacha of anything we have to do, but we focus on eating fruits and especially ones from the sheva minim. This salad represents most of the minim which is a great way to intertwine the components into your meal.

Minim Salad

1 cup pomegranate seeds
1 cup medjool dates, pitted and finely chopped about ¼ of a cup
2 cups cooked farro (a whole grain wheat) cooked according to package.
1 cup green grapes, halved
3 cups arugula


1 tablespoon honey
1 lemon freshly squeezed
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt to taste
Crush black pepper to taste

Mix everything together in a bowl and let it marinade for ½ hour, except for the arugula which you should add in right before serving and toss again.
