Farro, farro salad, farro with corn, summer salad, side dishFarro is one of my favorite whole grains. It has a distinct nutty flavor, and looks similar to brown rice but with a delicate chew. Use it in soups, salads, side dishes, or even as a breakfast cereal. Here I cooked it, let it cool, and tossed it together with fresh corn, herbs, crumbled feta, olive oil, and lemon. This farro salad makes a great side dish in late summer when corn is sweetest, but you can use just about vegetable of the season.
