Farro Salad with Feta


Farro salad with feta is the perfect side dish for roasted chicken, or to eat as a light meal. This farro salad can be prepared in advance and served throughout the week for quick lunches or as a side salad!


  • 3/4 cup dry farro
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth or water*
  • 2 - 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup cucumbers, chopped
  • Few slices of red onion
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro or parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled



  1. Rinse and drain the farro. 
  2. In a medium-sized pot, bring the chicken broth to a boil, then add in the farro. Lower the heat to a simmer, cook the farro covered until tender, 10 - 15 minutes.
  3. Once the farro is tender, add in the minced garlic and olive oil. Allow the farro to cool completely. 
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add the cooked farro, chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, a few slices of red onion, chopped cilantro or parsley, salt, black pepper, and crumbled feta cheese. Mix together, taste, and adjust seasoning if needed. Serve and Enjoy!


*My farro is quick-cooking, if using a different variety it may take longer to cook, and use more chicken broth or water

This farro salad with feta lasts for several days in the refrigerator.
