Cook the farro:
1 Cook the farro:

If you’re grilling, preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Oil the grill grates. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

2 Prepare the ingredients & rehydrate the figs:

While the farro cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Small dice the cucumber. If necessary, peel 1 clove of garlic (you may have extra). Roughly chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Roughly chop the figs. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a bowl, combine the chopped figs, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and vinegar.
