  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x



  • 1 cup cooked farro (See note)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas (thaw peas if using frozen)
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoon roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1 ounce feta
  • 2 tablespoons greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. For the salad, combine the farro, peas, red onion, sunflower seeds, and feta, set aside.
  2. Make the dressing by combining the remaining ingredients in a jar with lid. Shake well until combine and pour over salad. Toss everything to combine, taste, and add salt/pepper as needed.


While I love whole farro, pearled farro might be easier to use for this salad as it takes less cooking time. However, either will work!
