I love a good salad and am always making new ones. I had something similar to this the other day and tried to recreate it for dinner. It is really simple and tasty. I made this for 4 people as a side.
1 cup of farro ( or more depending on how many people )
1 bunch of asparagus, cleaned and cut into 1/4" slices
Ricotta Salata cheese, shaved
Cook the farro in advance and let it cool. 1 cup of farro to 2 cups of water. Make it like rice. Toss in a tad of red wine vinegar when done and let cool. When the asparagus is cleaned and cut, toss in boiling water for about 2 minutes and drain, rinse with cold water. Mix the asparagus with the farro. Shave some ricotta salata cheese over the top. How ever much you want. Squeeze a lemon and put in a little bit of olive oil and of course kosher salt to taste. I like it lemony so I used an entire lemon but it is purely your taste.
Enjoy. If I had fava beans or even edaname, I would have added that in too. This is a great base for a summer salad. I had it at the restaurant with some tiny squares of red and yellow beets too but Fred and Josh don't like beets so I passed.
