I had to make a special trip to Whole Foods to find farro, but it was so worth it! This stuff is like a mix between brown rice and barley. It's nice and chewy and hearty. With the avocado, it's even filling as a main course! It's great leftover for lunch, too. It's an all around refreshing summer dish. I've made a ton of variations on this dish (same vinaigrette) now, and it's one of our all-time favorite recipes!
Farro, Avocado, Cucumber, and Cherry Tomato Salad

This was super yummy! And due to the lime juice (I guess) the avocado did not darken so leftovers worked out well. Would serve to guests. Will make again (probably next week).

Really delicious. Did not use cilantro or avocado (none in house). Added chopped black olives and a couple dashes of hot (Tabasco) sauce. Other veggies (peppers, green or red onions, etc) should also work. Served with a grilled pork tenderloin with a rub of salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne, chili powder and oregano and steamed broccoli.

Excellent! The lime and vinegar flavors were complimented well with the creamy avocado. I used wheat berries since my store doesn't carry farro. Served with Sweet and Spicy Tilapia and steamed broccoli.
