With a long weekend quickly approaching, my mind has been on summer and everything that comes with it: warm weather, cold drinks, and plenty of cookouts. I love this time of year because we do so much cooking and eating outside.
It’s never hard to decide what to grill as the main course, but choosing sides isn’t always as easy, especially when it comes to choosing something for a group of people.
Mayonnaise-based dishes are common cookout staples, but the thought of those sitting in the heat for too long makes them less than appetizing to me. Don’t get me wrong, potato salad is one of my favorite summer sides. When it comes to eating outdoors, though, I prefer something much lighter and with no dairy. Enter farro salad. Light, refreshing and endlessly adaptable, this may just be my favorite recipe for summer.
