Farro is a nutritious grain and has a nutty texture when cooked. Summer is almost waning away and I am trying to enjoy the fresh produce as much as possible. This salad is loaded with black beans, corn, tomatoes and avocado. To be honest, although I love to eat salads, I am not in favor of making them. Salads are supposedly a simple dish, but I would rather bake bread than make salad . For that reason I keep my salads really simple with day to day ingredients. I had earlier posted a soup recipe using farro. Enjoy the summer with this healthy, tasty and easy salad. Off to the recipe.
