I was brainstorming to come up with a new grain-based salad to prepare for a holiday party recently, when I came across Creative Chilled Farro Salads by Anthony Pierce at Tuscan Fields. One salad that especially caught my eye on that page was Tony’s Strawberry, Golden Pineapple & Coconut Farro Salad. There was no actual recipe given, but I thought I could use it as inspiration for coming up with a tropical-style shrimp and farro salad of my own.

I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
