Farro is a type of ancient wheat that’s still very popular in Italian cuisine.
It’s hearty and pleasantly chewy, and it has a rich, nutty flavor.
Its flavor and texture make it a truly versatile grain. Farro recipes can range from casseroles, risottos (like this Italian Farro Recipe with feta) and pilafs to soups, stews and satisfying grain-based salads like today’s recipe.

How to Make Italian Farro Salad with Feta Cheese
Cook the farro and transfer it to a large bowl.
Prepare the dressing mixing all the ingredients together (except for the feta cheese) and pour half over the warm farro.
Pouring the dressing over the farro while it is still warm helps the farro drink it up, giving your farro salad an even fuller flavor
Add all of the remaining ingredients to the bowl. Toss to combine.
When the farro is no more hot sprinkle with feta, lightly toss again, add some additional dressing if you feel so included, then season with salt and pepper. ENJOY!
Store this salad in a covered, airtight container for up to three days.
