About this recipe: Chewy farro combines with the typical ingredients for a Greek salad for a yummy picnic dish or packed lunch. Instead of farro you could use wholegrain spelt or wheatberries.

  1. Combine the farro and water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer till the farro is tender, about 30 minutes. Drain any excess liquid, then set aside and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the vegetables and herbs. Season with salt and let sit while the farro cooks.
  3. Combine the cooled farrow, salad mixture and olive oil. Stir well. Crumble in the feta.
  4. Enjoy straightaway or chill till serving.


I cook the farro in my rice cooker. Simply combine the farro and water, turn on the cooker and wait till it's done.
