uncooked farro¾ cup(s)
table salt¼ tsp, for cooking farro
corn2 medium, kernels removed (about 1 cup)

- Combine farro, salt and water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until farro is tender, about 20 to 30 minutes (pearled/semi-pearled farro cooks in 20 to 30 minutes while whole farro cooks in 60 minutes - check your package carefully); drain well. Spoon farro into a serving bowl with corn and zucchini; mix well and allow farro to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, shallot, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes to farro mixture and then drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes for flavors to blend. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
