Farro Beet Salad (Recipe)
Farro, beets & greens! Farro is a hearty, chewy grain kind of like wheatberries. Instead of throwing those beet greens out, chop them finely and add them in - they are kind of like kale. Dress lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper (or any dressing, really) and eat warm or at room temperature. This dish is great for a picnic!
