Method

  • 01
  • Cook farro in a saucepan of boiling water until tender (10 minutes), then drain. Add remaining ingredients and season to taste. Serve with lemon wedges to the side.
Note Farro is available from select delicatessens.

This recipe is from the February 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

This substantial salad is lovely served with grilled fish such as salmon or sardines. You could use pearl barley or freekah instead of farro, but the cooking times may vary. For an even faster meal, you can cook the grain ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator.
