Farro & Watercress Salad

For a filling vegetarian salad option, try this Farro & Watercress Salad. It makes a wonderful light dinner or side dish for our Swordfish Kebabs with garlic parsley sauce. With chewy farro, peppery watercress, Pecorino Romano, and cannellini beans, the salad gets a briny, bright finish with capers, lemon, and fresh parsley.
