The combination of flavors and textures in this dish are perfect. We've also used garam masala (Indian spice blend available at large grocers) instead of the cumin - and it may have been even a little better! Potluck friendly - it's beautiful and travels well.
Blueberry Farro Salad
This salad is crunchy, chewy, sweet, and savory all at the same time. It is perfect paired with grilled anything or stands alone as a meatless main dish. Look for farro (also called wheat berries) next to the grains and rice at the supermarket. It can also be found in the bulk bins at large supermarkets. Recipe from Tom Rocket, Green Fields Market, Greenfield, Mass. (via relish.com).
