Farro Greek Salad

A few weeks ago I was invited down to St. Pete at Three Birds Tavern where they were celebrating the launch of their new salad dressing line Out of the Weeds.

Nichole from Casa de Crews and myself headed down from north county to meet up with Nikki of  SandBookWich to check out the dressings.

Roasted Beet DressingObviously I love Greek inspired dishes. The Roasted Beet dressing was my absolute favorite, so I took a bottle home.

I couldn’t wait to experiment with it, but what was I going to make. I didn’t want to just make any old Greek salad. I looked around the pantry and found a bag of farro I had picked up at Trader Joes. I’ve never cooked farro before, but being a big fan of grain salads I figured I couldn’t go wrong on this one. So I used my cucumber from the co-op basket and picked up tomatoes, onions, feta and olives to complete this dish.
