Method of Preparation:

- Bring salted water to a boil and add the Farro. While that's on the stove, put your beets in the oven and roast at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

To Plate:

Put the sliced beets down on the plate, then top with Tzatziki Sauce and then the Farro. Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper over boiled yellow and green tomatoes and stack them on top of the Farro. Cut the cucumber with a melon baller and add them and cubed red and yellow beets to the plate in a decorative way. Also place mixed greens around the plate. Finish salad with a drizzle of olive oil and garnish with some micro basil.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
