Last summer, Rachel Weill created this salad using farro, a nutty-tasting wheat berry.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot. Add farro and cook until just tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Put farro and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss gently to coat.

Step 3

*Find farro with the other grains at well-stocked grocery stores.

everything came together so easily, but the taste was just average. it gave me a chance to use items i had growing in the garden, so with that in mind, i will keep this recipe and make again.

Everyone in my family loved this. I think I will cut the cucumber a bit chunkier next time, just to hold up better with the farro. I used a pomegranate infused red wine vinegar, because that's what I had on hand.

I thought this salad was very good, refreshing and hearty at the same time. My farro seemed a bit undercooked. Will increase cooking time next time. My 7 and 11 year old boys liked it too, although one did pick the tomatoes out.
