Fresh Herb & Tomato Farro Salad

Kyra Williams for The Upside Blog


This feel-good dish has everything you could want in a salad: diverse textures, flawless pairing of flavors and plenty of nutritional benefits. With its complex, nutty taste, the farro pairs perfectly with cherry tomatoes, and the balsamic vinaigrette becomes more flavorful the longer it sits (so feel free to make it ahead of time). Though it’s perfect over a bed of greens, as a side, or under tender grilled chicken, we usually prefer to enjoy a bowl on its own.
