Directions

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, toss in the farro and cook for 20 minutes, strain, and rinse with cold water, then set aside.

Add the tomatoes to a bowl, add the mozzarella, rip the basil leaves with your hands, and add the olives.

Season with a good quality extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper, to taste.

Serve right away or cover and refrigerate for tomorrow's picnic.

Notes

Make sure you only use superior grade mozzarella for this recipe. You are preparing a fresh salad, so stay away from the plastic-looking mozzarella cube they sell at your regular grocery, and find in your neighborhood an establishment that carries "the real deal".

    This is one of the BEST salads I've ever made--and so easy! I really liked it at room temperature because the delicate flavor of the mozzarella stands out. After plating, we drizzled it with a tomato seed finishing oil, but an aged balsamic would be great, too. We've debated having the leftovers the next morning for breakfast topped with a poached egg. (We slightly altered the preparation of the farro: to the boiling water I added a sprig of fresh rosemary and 3 cloves of smashed garlic.)

    I loved this. My husband loved this. My kids loved this. This recipe has all the healthy ingredients I'm trying to work into my diet. I found this recipe while watching Extra Virgin as a free monthly offer from my cable provider. I think I need to add the Cooking Channel and this program to my favorites list!!
