Farro, Cherry, and Walnut Salad
July 27, 2014
"Farro is a quick-cooking grain with a mild flavor. This summer salad is great with grilled meat, poultry, or fish. If you can't find farro, you can substitute wheat berries or quinoa. When fresh cherries are out of season, try this with dried sweetened cranberries. From Cooking Light."
