Blueberry Farro Salad

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).
