Loving this end of summer/fall farro lentil salad using all of my goodies from the garden!  It can be served as a main dish, vegetarian or not over greens or as a side.  I sometimes toss it in my lunch salad also!  It is super easy to make and  you can switch out any grains or use different peppers, oils, herbs and just get creative!
