Mediterranean Farro Salad

This is a great salad and can be eaten warm after the Farro has just been cooked or cold. It’s a pretty simple salad that is great when the tomatoes and cucumbers are in season. Farro is an awesome grain full of vitamins B & E, Magnesium, and packs about 8 grams of fiber per cup.  It’s also a great source of complex carbs.
