A colorful, healthy salad--something a little different. Chewy farro with fresh tomatoes and herbs, the sour saltiness of feta cheese, dressed up with a simple balsamic vinaigrette.

This can be modified to include other herbs, and is extra special with the addition of some diced avocado.
It’s really fabulous with a handful or two of sliced almonds that have been lightly toasted in your toaster oven or a saute pan on your stovetop.
