End of Summer Salad

End of Summer Salad
My dad’s wife has a hidden talent- finding what is left in the refrigerator and making some of the best meals you’ve ever had. Last weekend, she threw together some cooked farro with leftover salmon, corn and tomatoes from the farmer’s market, and everything except the kitchen sink to make a salad that could absolutely sell for over $20 at an Upper East Side cafe. It marked the end of summer with the last basil, corn, and tomatoes of the season. Do you have any great fall salad recipes to share?

-salt and pepper to taste
