Do Ahead or Delegate: Cook the farro, seed and dice the jalapeño if using, zest and juice the lime, combine the spices, make and refrigerate the dressing, or fully prepare and refrigerate the dish.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Use the whole jalapeno and top the salad at the table with hot pepper sauce or sriracha. Add some chipotle or ancho chili powder to the dressing. Dice and add 1 ripe mango. Add 1 cup of crumbled feta, queso fresco, or sharp Cheddar cheese.
Tip: When zesting any citrus, try to avoid including any of the white part (under the colored part of the peel), also known as the pith, as it is bitter.
