This salad makes a great side to meat or soup, is chewy, low fat, and full of flavor with fresh tomato, chopped nuts, and fresh chopped mint.
A delicious, low-fat, recipe that can be used as a main course of side dish. This salad has pecans, dried cranberries, and a creamy low-fat dressing which is made with plain, non-fat yogurt and buttermilk.

Saw this being made with Farro on a cooking show. Could not find Farro and decided to use wheat berries instead. My wife who is not a big wheat berry fan did comment about the good flavor. Considering the majority of the alcohol has been cooked out of this, I do believe the calculated calorie count is higher than what it really is.
This recipe includes several wonderful summer favorites; sweet corn, summer squash, ricotta, cherry tomatoes, almonds, and fresh mint, for a delicious, hearty, healthy, light summer meal.
