Farro Salads are delicious, healthy and so satisfying! They’re also incredibly versatile. Farro is a nutty tasting grain that makes the perfect base for all kinds of vegetables, nuts, seeds, cheeses and meats. Check out this comprehensive guide on How to Cook Farro. The term ‘farro’ can be confusing as it comes from Italian Latin that refers to three species of hulled wheat: spelt, emmer and einkorn. If you can’t find farro in your local grocery store, look for one of these other wheats as they will work just as well in farro salads.
