Cook like a real Italian by barely cooking at all. I loosely based this salad on a bruschetta that I once had in Rome. Enjoy this healthy and filling salad in all of its simplicity by using the best and freshest ingredients you can find. —MyFareFoodie

  • Serves 2
  • 1/2 cup pearled Italian farro
  • 5 ounces premium tuna packed in olive oil - Genova brand is great
  • Bunch arugula
  • Handful olives, pitted and halved - I used Gaeta olives, but Kalamatas work too

  • Bunch parsley, chopped
  • Splash fresh lemon juice
