    Chandra M's Note:

    This was my first experience using Farro (received it as a gift). It reminds me of barley, with a slightly wheat flavor. The amount of herbs used could be increased and varied to taste. I think I will add basil and mint next time. Cook time includes soaking time and cooling time. This is a great way to eat whole grains in the summer.

      I made this summery salad to take to my grandmother's for lunch. We both enjoyed it very much. Great flavors, it is reminiscent of other Mediterranean salads I have made before, but this time using farro as the base. While you need to set aside quite a bit of time to make this salad (mostly owing to the soaking and the simmering of the farro), it is quite easy to make. We had a lot of leftovers and the salad held up well the next day with an extra little splash of red wine vinegar. I'll make this again. Thanks!
