Notes

Helpful tips
  • You can make this farro salad vegetarian by cooking it in water or vegetable broth. I use chicken broth when I cook farro to give it more flavor.
  • You could make it vegan by omitting the feta cheese.
  • Make sure the farro has cooled completely before adding the rest of the ingredients.
  • Sometimes I put the sun-dried tomatoes in while the farro is hot or still warm to help soften the tomatoes.  I did not do that in this recipe.
