Farro is my new favorite whole grain. I love the chewiness and it’s versatility for using in cold or hot dishes like this Farro Salad. It cooks up just like rice and you can add various flavors to enhance it’s basic taste.
I like the addition of beans in this recipe to, not only help you get your daily does of beans, but also to increase the protein content. Feel free to mix up the additions as other chopped veggies can work quite well, too.
Some ideas might include sun dried tomatoes, radishes, arugula, orange sections, mushrooms or tomatoes… What would you use? I love the versatility of this, and all grains, really. I could eat one of these salads each week! Especially now while it’s still 90 degrees in Boulder.
