Hearty whole grain salads are always a great addition at any picnic. I think the key is to reverse the traditional ratio of more grain to less vegetable, packing this salad full of fresh vegetables and using the grain almost as a condiment.
In this recipe, spring vegetables take the lead and farro, or your grain of choice, assumes a supporting role. Take any extras home, toss with mixed greens, and top with a pan-roasted fish fillet or lean protein of choice and you’ve got a pretty good dinner, too.
