Summer Farro Salad - Aug 18, 2010

Farro Salad with Summer Vegetables

This recipe was posted over at 101 Cookbooks just last week. It was perfect timing for me to use up some of our super fresh CSA veggies. I substituted as needed and ended up with veggies including broccoli, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, and fennel. This reminded me so much of those pasta salads my Mom used to make all summer. You know the ones...present at every summer pot-luck, family reunion, and neighborhood party. This one is just a little healthier, replacing pasta with hearty farro. The recipe is said to be inspired by a salad at Portland's Clyde Common, which was appropriate considering we shared this meal with Anna, Dinner Club's Portland delegate.
