|Farro Vegetable Salad|
by Gloria Kobrin, author of Kosher Cookbook - iPhone & iPad Touch Application
Farro is a grain that is very healthy and easy to prepare. It has a chewy texture and a somewhat nutty taste. When you toss farro (or any grain) with dressing right after it has finished cooking, while still warm, the grain absorbs the flavor more fully. Add an assortment of colorful vegetables and herbs after it has cooled and you have a healthy, delicious, beautiful side dish for dinner. Serve it with some wonderful crusty bread and you have a great lunch.
As with any recipe, my proportions and vegetable choices should serve as a guide. Experimenting with different combinations is part of the fun of cooking.
