  • 1/2 c Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Plain Yogurt
  • 1/4 c plus 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 2 T white wine vinegar
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t black pepper

Step 1

Combine yogurt, 1/4 cup of the basil, vinegar, mayonnaise, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper in a blender. Pulse until well combined; set aside.

When farro has cooled, stir in remaining 2 tablespoons basil, tomatoes and cucumber in a large bowl until well blended.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season scallops with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook scallops 2 to 4 minutes per side.

Step 5

Stir dressing into farro salad and divide it evenly among 6 plates, then top with scallops, dividing equally. Serve immediately.
