Cook the Book: Winter Farro Salad

Today's recipe, reprinted from Simple Italian Snacks by Jason Denton and Kathryn Kellinger, is a gorgeous, jewel-toned salad just bursting with flavor and texture. I'm getting hungry just reading the ingredients list: pomegranate seeds, toasted almonds, chopped apples, smoked mozzarella, and roasted garlic?

The bountiful salad is built around farro, a chewy grain grown only in Italy. (If you have trouble finding it, substitute barley, quinoa or Israeli couscous.) Since it's a salad without greens, it can be dressed and refrigerated well in advance, making it an ideal dish for a party.
