Farro is an ancient wheat grain (also called “emmer”) that is a showstopper in salads, with fruit, as a breakfast grain, and even as a traditional pasta replacement. It has a slight chewiness (al dente) to it, so it is heartier than pasta and is often used in place of it. This farro salad (with a Mediterranean flair) is perfect to make for a luncheon, a potluck, or for your lunches next week!
