Ingredients

  • 1 cup farro (uncooked)
  • 6-8 oz. grape tomatoes
  • 1 large hothouse cucumber
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 small red onion (sub shallot or green onion for milder flavor)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • Optional: olives, garbanzo beans

For the oil-free tangy Greek dressing

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2-3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp. salt (more to taste)

Instructions

  • Cook farro: rinse well and add to a small pot with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to med-low and simmer for 25 minutes or until desired tenderness. Drain.
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing: mince garlic and combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Halve tomatoes, finely dice red onion, and dice cucumber and bell pepper. Roughly chop parsley. Place in a large bowl.
  • Add drained farro, dressing, and stir to combine.
  • Great served immediately. (Or even better after it sits covered in the fridge for an hour! Just give it a stir before serving as the dressing settles at the bottom.)
