YUMMY I love it! Followed the recipe exactly except I couldn't even wait for the farro to cool down. Also added some salt and pepper. So simple and delicious, Next time I will put some ribbons of mint on top. Don't skimp on the capers. - 26 May 2015


Made the salad exactly. Needs some seasoning. May make it again, will have to see how it is after it sits a while. As far as appearance, the tomato makes it. A handful of capers is a rather subjective measurement - I used a 125ml jar of capers. - 29 May 2015


This is a fresh tasting, healthy, and easy to make salad. Farro is an ancient grain of Roman times composed of a variety of wheat species. High in fiber, a good source of iron and protein and easy to digest. Try this for your next bbq! - 25 May 2015
