Farro Salad

Nutty, satisfying farro is even better mixed with roasted veggies, ricotta salata and a touch of Calabrian chili paste for balanced heat. Fresh lemon juice and parsley brighten up the dish. This healthy, vivid salad makes a lovely summer lunch, or a side at dinner with grilled fish, lamb or burgers.
