Winter Farro Salad with Feta and Citrus Vinaigrette

Winter Farro Salad with Feta and Citrus Vinaigrette has a lot going on. The nuttiness of farro shines through in contrast to the sweetness of the winter fruit. Feta gives it just that little bit of zestiness needed to make this a well rounded salad that is as much at home as a side on your dinner table, or as the star of the show at a picnic.
