This is very good, and I first found it at . I don't use radicchio, but use Boston lettuce instead. Very pretty too.

3/4 cup whole farro
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
3/4 cup red seedless grapes, halved
3/4 cup radicchio, chopped
1/2 cup celery, sliced
1/2 cup scallions, sliced
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, finely minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoon white wine or champagne vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled

While the farro is cooking, prepare the grapes, radicchio, celery and scallions per the ingredient list.

To cook the farro, in a medium saucepan, combine farro, 1/4 teaspoon salt and water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook until farro is tender, about 60-70 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.

After the farro has cooled, in a large bowl, combine farro, grapes, radicchio, celery and scallions. Pour vinaigrette over the farro mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle goat cheese on top and serve.

How did the fool *get* his money?!
