EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The vegetables can be broiled instead of grilled. Turn oven control to broil. After tossing the vegetables with oil mixture, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 8 to 12 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Farro is an ancient Tuscan grain similar to pearled barley or wheat berries. It has a chewy, nutty texture that goes great with grilled or roasted vegetables.

You can find farro in the grain aisle of some grocery stores, specialty stores or Italian markets.

Can’t find farro? Wheat berries or pearled barley can be used in place of the farro in this salad. Cook the grains as directed on package
