I've made this four times since the Sept. 2011 issue came out - it is an awesome lunch! It seemed a little on the oily side to me the first time I made it, so I've cut back to 2 tablespoons of oil and added an extra teaspoon of lemon juice. This gives it a little extra bite and it's not quite as oily on the palate. If you have a co-op or health food store near you, you can likely find farro in bulk - that's where I got mine.
