Roasted Vegetables and Farro Salad

To debut farro to my husband, I knew I had to came up with a great recipe that would blow him away. This recipe did the trick; he is sold! I love being able to make a stockpile of farro that I can repurpose in multiple recipes throughout the week. It’s versatility is great and it’s a perfect alternative side to couscous or rice. This recipe is not only husband-approved but also a unique potluck dish. For a complete dinner, try pairing it with my Habanero & Green Pepper Crusted Tilapia.
