Farro and Arugula Mediterranean Salad

Farro is a wheat-based nutty, slightly sweet and pleasingly chewy grain.  It is loaded with fiber, protein and some essential minerals and vitamins. Using it in this Mediterranean-inspired salad is a nice change from your usual grains!

1. In a pot, cover farro with water and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 25-35 minutes until slightly tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Place in serving bowl.
2. Add all remaining ingredients, toss and serve.

1 cup diced red pepper
