I’ve been a little bit lazy and in a total vacation mode lately. That means that I have not been cooking much. I know it is kind of weird as this is a food blog and I’m a food lover.

I prepared it with farro and kale, feel free to use any other green or grain  you have around instead of farro. And…. I been so lazy that I made this salad with canned beans…?. But… I always look for the organic ones with just beans, not even salt in the ingredient list.
