We had this salad for dinner two nights ago and I am still thinking about it. That's for sure the sign of a good meal, especially for a salad. Between the sweet nectarines, creamy avocado, crunchy cucumber, and nutty farro, this salad has so many elements to love. Plus there is a simple lemon and olive oil dressing that I use at least once a week for quick lunch time greens. And I can't let you go before telling you about all the fresh herbs in this salad. With a combination of basil, cilantro, and mint, you get so much flavor in every bite. Thinking about heading to the kitchen now for the leftovers...
