From the Test Kitchen

This farro salad boasts delicious contrast from tender chickpeas tossed in a savory-sweet barbecue sauce, crunchy marinated cucumbers, and bites of sweet corn (charred to lightly caramelize the kernels for even more flavor).

Fill a separate, small pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once the medium pot is boiling, add the farro. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove the husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the pepper; thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handing. In a bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.Thinly slice the chives. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

Drain and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs; thinly slice. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the corn kernels in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until charred (be careful, as the corn may pop as it cooks). Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.
