Very good! Trying to eat more grains and bought farro. My kids (6, 5,1) did not care for this but I thought it was delicious. My only criticism was the raw onion, it was to strong and over power...

My family loves this dish! My kids (11 and 6) both eat it really well! As a treat, we add feta cheese on top.

Great recipe! Very fresh. Should go great with any summertime grill or just by itself! I just added a little salt and black pepper

Too strong raw onion taste, but very good otherwise. Will make again for a summer BBQ.
