Directions

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle cherry tomatoes with salt and olive oil. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes.

Step 2

Cook the farro according to package instructions. Once cooked, toss with a bit of olive oil to prevent it from sticking together.

Step 3

Toast the pine nuts in a skillet over medium-low heat until slightly golden and fragrant. Toss frequently to prevent burning.

Step 4

To make the dressing, simply whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl.

Step 5

Now, it's time to assemble the salad. Combine the farro and tomatoes together in a large salad bowl. Toss in the feta, roasted pine nuts, and fresh herbs of your choosing. Add 1/4 cup of dressing at a time, to make sure you don't add too much. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
