Spring Farro Salad + Lemon Vinaigrette

Boredom has set in big time here so I have been cooking a lot to stay busy. I usually make more couscous and quinoa salads but I had some Farro and decided to use it instead. It has a rich nutty flavor and is more robust then the other two. That being said this salad could be made with quinoa, couscous, pasta whatever you prefer and have on hand! I love the combo of the veggies with the mozzarella cheese and lemon vinaigrette. Enjoy!
