Farro Italian Pasta Salad

posted in: Recipes | 0

I love the classic Italian pasta salad. I look forward to pasta salad as soon as it turns spring, and then enjoy throughout summer. Instead of using pasta and sliced pepperoni, I like to have small components because I think it helps give you that perfect bite. Because of that, I use diced pepperoni and farro. This is a great option as a side dish or to bring into work for lunches!
