Berry Fine Feast

Berries abound in this nourishing salad combo tonight. Part of the tabletop celebration will be a dazzling seasonal salad of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. You’ll set them off with a yogurt, mint and honey sauce.

You’ll also cook the ancient grain farro (also known as emmer). The farro anchors a terrific sweet and savory salad made with toasted hazelnuts, chopped scallions and dried tart cherries. 

Serve the salads alongside a piece of smoked salmon or trout with a warmed baguette. It’s a great leisurely Sunday feast.
