Salads with Grains
Chef Art Smith of Washington, DC's Art and Soul restaurant loves to toss whole grains, like farro, into his green salads to make them more substantial. In addition to farro, try this salad with wheat berries, spelt or barley. Most farro is slightly pearled (the white starch shines through the brown hull), so it cooks quickly. If it's not, it may take longer to cook.
