Ingredients

  • 1 cup pearled farro
  • 3 ears corn
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 1/4 cup fresh sliced basil

Dressing

  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add farro and cook until tender but still chewy, 20-25 minutes. Drain and cool.
  • Cut the corn from cobs and into a serving bowl.
  • Add farro, tomatoes, and basil.
  • Mix together dressing. Pour over salad and mix to combine. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Notes

  • Make Ahead: If making ahead, keep salad in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours, reserving the basil until you are ready to serve. (It can turn black if added too soon!)
  • Farro: Make sure you use pearled in the recipe. Fully whole grain farro takes much longer to cook and may need to be soaked first for best results.
