Blueberry and Farro Salad

Blueberry and Farro Salad

Blueberry and Farro Salad! This sweet and savory salad is perfect for summer entertaining! Fresh blueberries, chewy farro, cucumber and feta in a lemonish dressing.

Like most summer salads, I believe that this one gets better with age. I’ve made it a few times now and though I like it immediately, it tastes best after sitting for an hour or two. This salad is so bright and refreshing, it’s perfect to pair with whatever you’re serving off the grill. I recently made this for a summer get together and paired it with a giant platter of grilled vegetables and grilled salmon. Super light and delicious.
