Early Fall Farro Salad Recipe

Recently we were at a writer’s retreat with some friends of ours. It was a beautiful weekend with time to relax, be inspired by one another’s stories, wiggle our toes in the lake, get a little paddle boarding in and share delicious meals. The first evening we prepared dinner and the dish that was front and center, was this Early Fall Farro Salad. We used it as a bed for baked white sole. It was a dinner full of fresh, clean flavor not to mention, the best of conversations!
