Farro, Cherry Tomato and Arugula Salad

Farro, Cherry Tomato and Arugula Salad

This hearty and healthy whole-grain salad can be a side dish or entrée. It starts with farro, an ancient relative of modern-day wheat that is full of dietary fiber and is dressed with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Arugula adds a peppery bite to the salad and important phytonutrients, as it is a cruciferous vegetable. Turn this recipe into an entrée by topping it with grilled chicken or seafood, or make it a meatless entrée by tossing it with cannellini beans or chick peas.
