This refreshingly sweet salad is a tasty culinary delight. Yes you can use barley in place of the farro. But try to get it. It is so chewy and yummy!

FABULOUS, Rita! Love it. So easy. So flavorful. Perfect side dish to just about anything! I am going to eat it luke warm for lunch and then serve it warmed up a bit to hubby for dinner as a side to a veggie burger! I left out the cucumber, only because I didn't have any. . .otherwise made recipe spot on! Made as a recipenap for Veg*n Tag December 2009. UPDATE: I made this delightful recipe today, leaving off the cheese and adding Kalamata olives to replace that zing. Perfect Vegan dish for this Ash Wednesday!
