White Bean and Farro Salad

The original recipe is from Real Simple Magazine. I added sliced radishes and felt it needed a little more so added some balsamic glaze on top as well. The prep time below includes the time you want the salad to sit with the dressing so the flavors meld together. Don't skip this part.
