To make this a full whole-grain salad, avoid pearled farro, which has been partially processed. Yes, it takes a little longer, but to save time, hunt down some precooked whole-grain farro. It's found on the rice aisle. The recipe, however, begins with uncooked grain, which needs an hour in the pot and a little time to cool. We recently tasted--and loved--Wild Planet's wild albacore tuna, jarred in olive oil, which is firm, meaty, rich, and moist. We also love that it's sustainable, 100% pole and troll caught.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine farro, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 4 cups water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 60 minutes or until farro is tender but still slightly chewy. Drain. Cool slightly.

Step 2

While farro cooks, fill another medium saucepan two-thirds full with water; bring to a boil. Add green beans; cook 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain.

Step 3

Combine oil, vinegar, juice, mustard, and garlic in a large bowl; stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add farro, beans, tomatoes, and next 4 ingredients (through green onions); toss well to combine. Flake tuna into large chunks. Add tuna to salad; toss gently to combine.
