A surprisingly delicious summer salad

I didn’t expect this “farro” salad to be tasty. Farro is a kind of super-healthy whole grain that at first glance looks unappetizing. It looks like you’re eating a big bowl of barley!

Turns out I was wrong. Farro has a nutty and pleasant taste that is extra scrumptious when paired with diced apples, raisins and sliced almonds.

As a bonus, farro is rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. Like many whole grains, farro may also help lower your risk of diseases, including heart disease and diabetes.

So whip up a bowl of this farro salad at your next summer shindig. Surprise your guests with this unusually tasty side dish.
