This fiber-rich salad combines garden-fresh summer vegetables and farro with a tangy fresh dill vinaigrette. Farro is a type of grain with a nutty flavor and ancient roots.

    Cook the Chicken

    Preheat your grill over medium to high heat. Brush each side of the chicken breast with oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Grill on each side for 5-6 minutes. Chicken breast should be firm to the touch, and juices will run clear. Cover and reserve until plating.
