Step 1In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil over high heat. Add farro, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 15-18 minutes or until al dente. Drain in fine mesh sieve and run under cold water to cool completely. Shake off excess liquid.
Step 2Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine tomatoes, cilantro, mozzarella, onion, jalapeno, garlic, canola oil, lime zest and juice, and vinegar. Stir in farro and beans. Toss gently, until just blended. Serve immediately for peak flavors and texture.
For peak color and texture, do not add the black beans until time of serving. The acidity in the other ingredients will cause the beans to “muddle” slightly onto the other ingredients if allowed to stand for longer than 30 minutes.
