Farro, an ancient Italian grain with a wonderfully chewy texture, is available at specialty shops and Italian markets.  Terrific Green Salads

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan, cover the farro with the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat until barely tender, about 20 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of salt and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes longer. Drain well, then transfer to a large bowl and let cool.

Step 2    

In a medium bowl, mash the garlic with a pinch of salt until it becomes a puree. Whisk in the balsamic vinegar and then the olive oil. Season the dressing with pepper.

Step 3    

Add the tomatoes, onion, chives and parsley to the farro and toss. Add the dressing to the salad, season with salt and pepper and toss, then serve.
