Farro Salad with Feta Cheese, Tomatoes, Olives and Dill


  • Ready Time : 0 min


4-6 Servings


  • 1 1/2 cups semi-pearled farro
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, deseeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives
  • 2 thick scallions, chopped
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Place the farro in a saucepan and add enough water to cover by one inch. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the farro is tender. Drain any remaining liquid and place the farro in a bowl to cool. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives, scallions, feta cheese, dill and garlic and toss to distribute ingredients evenly. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, red-wine vinegar, lemon juice and mustard. Pour over the salad and toss the ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let the salad stand at least 30 minutes before serving.

    Great salad. I added a little more lemon juice/red wine vinegar and a little bit of hot pepper.
