This warm farro salad is easy to prepare and holds up very well. The cooked farro gets topped with a delicious dijon vinaigrette when it is still hot, so it soaks in a ton of wonderful flavor. It can be eaten warm, at room temperature or chilled. The recipe makes a nice amount, so you'll be sure to have leftovers to pack in your lunch. It will also be a great dish to take on picnics or to summer barbecue parties! I hope you will love it!

Reduce grill heat to medium, turn steak over and continue to cook for about 5 minutes or until internal temperature measures about 137 degrees F. with an instant read thermometer or to desired doneness.
