1/3 Photos of Farro, Apple and Pecan Salad
Cooked farro has a nutty flavor and slightly chewy texture, both of which are particularly delicious in salads like this one. Use your favorite variety of apple to make this late summer and early fall salad. Sliced pears are a perfect match, too. From Whole Foods. I've not tried this one yet.
