Nice dish

I liked this salad as a side with some simple pan-grilled tilapia with lime juice and chili powder. However, I just steamed the corn and only for a minute or two.  I fear it would be soggy if sauteed as described.  And it's super simple and much cheaper to just make your own farrow rather than buying it precooked.

Although I've been cooking a lot of grain salads lately, this was my first time using farro - I really loved it - its somehow a little nuttier and slightly crunchier than barley, quinoa etc. The vinaigrette was good, although I think I could have used a little less; I also grilled the corn.
