The classic flavors of Mediterranean food never fails to pull my heartstrings. I don’t know if it is because it reminds me of my childhood, because its fresh flavors, or it cold be the lemon and feta. Either way, I will never turn away a good Mediterranean and you shouldn’t either. My easy Mediterranean Farro Salad is definitely one of those dishes that you never turn away. If you’re making it for a simple weeknight dinner or as a side at your next bbq, this simple recipe will not disappoint.

Can we be honest with each other? When I’m at any gathering, the first thing that I’m reaching for are the side dishes. Who am I kidding? I usually have a plate in hand that is strictly dedicated to sides only. All this to say, that I appreciate a good side dish, and my Mediterranean Farro Salad is one of them.

How to make Mediterranean Farro Salad
- Step 1: Cook your Bob’s Red Mill Farro according to package instructions. You will see that it tells you to use 4qts of water. You can substitute half of the water with broth for more flavor, but I must admit that when I have done this, the farro isn’t as firm as I would like. So, for the best possible outcome, just use water. Once your farro has finished cooking. Set 3 cups to the side and let it cool down to room temperature.
- Step 2: Prepare my All Purpose Greek Marinade. You will use this to marinate any protein that you may add to the salad and you will also use it to dress your salad.
- Step 3: Prep all of your veggies if you haven’t already done so.
- Step 4: Mix all ingredients and then toss in the marinade. If you are going to have this salad sit out for a while, then do not mix in the marinade. Just put it in a nice serving dish and sit it beside the salad so that your guests can get their desired amount.
