Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle the cherry tomatoes with olive oil.
Sprinkle them with garlic, sugar, salt, and thyme. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes.
Cook the farro according to package instructions. Once cooked, toss with a bit of olive oil to prevent it from sticking together.
Toast the pine nuts in a skillet over medium-low heat until slightly golden and fragrant. Toss frequently to prevent burning.
To make the dressing, whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl.
Combine the farro and tomatoes together in a large salad bowl.
