    Instructions


    1

    Cook farfalle pasta, farro and quinoa according to packaging instructions. Cool and set aside in a large bowl.

    2

    Remove steaks from packaging and pat dry. Season skirt steak with salt and pepper blend. Grill or sear in a hot pan for 2-3 minutes on each side. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes.

    3

    Place corn kernels in a microwave safe bowl and cover with water. Add 1/4 tsp salt. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Strain water off corn and let chill in the fridge.

    4

    Combine vegetables and herbs into large bowl with pasta and grains.

    5

    Toss pasta salad with 1 cup of dressing. Add more dressing if you desire a creamier salad.

    6

    Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.

    7

    Once steak has rested and cooled, cut skirt steak in half and then begin slicing against the grain of the beef about 1/4 inch -1/2 thick.

    8

    Toss skirt steak and feta cheese in pasta salad and serve.

    9

    Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

    Chef's Tip

    Red quinoa can be found in the organic aisle of the supermarket. White quinoa can be substituted. Cutting steak against the grain makes a much more tender steak.
