Farro Caprese Salad

Makes 4 to 6 servings Farro is a nutty, chewy grain commonly used in Italian cuisine. Tossed with the classic components of a caprese salad, like creamy mozzarella cheese and sweet summer tomatoes, you will love it for school lunches, a take-along picnic dish, or a side for grilled chicken or shrimp.


  • 2 cups cooked farro, cooled (from about 2/3 cup dry)
  • 1 cup diced mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup yellow pear tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped basil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the farro, cheese, tomatoes, and vinegar. Add the vinegar, olive oil, and salt, and mix to combine.
  2. Cover and refrigerate until use.
