This salad has so many olives that there's a piece in every single bite.In 2018, Food & Wine named this recipe one of our 40 best: When food bloggers hit the scene, a whole new slew of talent became part of the pages of F&W. Among the first of those was Heidi Swanson, who started writing her wonderful vegetarian food blog, 101 Cookbooks, in 2003. Swanson was also at the forefront of the wholegrain craze, and her incredible farro and green olive salad was featured in our “Salad of the Month” column. The secret is in the balance: Each bite holds a bit of chewy farro, toasty walnut, fresh scallion, and briny green olive. Swanson’s dressing is a little sweet and a little spicy, and, put together, it’s an explosion of flavor and texture that’s unbeatable.
