I say attempt because I made a lot of changes from the original recipe for this salad.
For a couple of months, Aj and I were trying Blue Apron. I don’t remember ever having a bad meal with them, we only cancelled the subscription because we rarely have the same eating schedule as each other so it was hard to find a time to make it.
There was one particular meal that really stood out to me, it was so delicious! I wanted to make it again but a couple of the ingredients for it were very specific and difficult to find in the area, so we made some substitutions.
2 Corn Tortillas (substituted regular tortilla chips broken up for this)
¾ cup Semi-Pearled Farro (substituted barley)
1 Cara Cara Orange (just used a regular orange)
1 Sweet Potato
½ lb Broccoli
1 Chipotle Pepper In Adobo Sauce (this was so specific, I originally planned to substitute a jalapeno instead but the store was out! So instead, used a Serrano pepper)
1 oz Queso Fresco (opted for two ounces because cheese)
1 Tbsp Agave Nectar
So if you want the recipe, it is available here. I do recommend, if you have the time and finances, to try Blue Apron!
Here’s some photos of our process:
In the end, IT TURNED OUT SO DELICIOUS! It wasn’t quite as spicy as the original which kind of showcased all the other ingredients. I definitely will make this again sometime. Maybe make more changes next time.
I would note that I enjoyed the extra cheese. Aj noted that he liked the chips for more of a crunch and also the barley he liked better than farro.
It also inspired us to try cooking more often so we’ll see what becomes of that!
