      Bacon, Tomato, and Farro Salad with Balsamic Dressing
      1 1/2 cups uncooked farro
      1 quart water
      2 tsp kosher salt
      2 tomatoes, cored, seeds removed, diced
      1/4 cup diced red onion
      2 green onions, thinly sliced
      4 to 6 strips bacon, cooked, drained on paper towels, diced
      2 tbs fresh chopped parsley
      Balsamic Dressing:
      4 tbs olive oil
      3 tbs good quality balsamic vinegar
      1 clove garlic, finely minced
      1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
      kosher salt, to taste
      salad greens, romaine lettuce leaves, or your favorite for serving
      Combine the farro, water, and 2 tsp of salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the farro is tender. Drain thoroughly then transfer to a bowl and let cool.
      Combine the diced tomatoes, red and green onion, bacon, and parsley.
      Combine the cooled farro with the vegetable mixture. Toss gently to blend ingredients
      In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the balsamic vinegar, garlic, and freshly ground black pepper.
      Gently stir the dressing mixture into the cooled farro mixture. Taste and add salt, as needed.
      Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator about 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
      Serve the salad over mixed salad greens, iceberg or romaine lettuce leaves, or pea shoots.
      Serves 6.
