Farro with Peas, Feta and Herb-Yogurt Dressing


Okay I know I can’t stop/won’t stop when it comes to these grain salads but this is another keeper.  Nice and Spring-y with peas and herbs.  The creamy, lemony, herb yogurt dressing is perfect with the crunchy seeds and salty feta.


I just love these make ahead dishes that are hearty and filling but full of all kinds of good stuff.  Plus there’s feta which I seem to be adding to everything lately and by lately I mean the last 20 years.


You’ll need:

For Salad

  • 3 cups cooked farro
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen peas (thaw peas if frozen)
  • 0.25 cup minced red onion
  • 0.25 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta

For Dressing

  • 0.5 cup greek yogurt
  • 0.5 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup minced parsley
  • 0.25 cup minced chives
  • Salt/pep

To Make:

  1. Combine farro, peas, onion and seeds in large bowl.
  2. In small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients until well combined.
  3. Add dressing to farro mixture, a little at time, until dressing to your liking. Stir in feta.  I like to toss with dressing right before serving. If you’ve already added dressing add a little more or some lemon juice when time to eat.
