Farro + Sumac Summer Salad

This simple summer salad shines with fresh local ingredients. Play with amounts of herbs and veggies to suit your preference. We love Farro in this salad, but Wheat Berries would be a wonderful substitution in a pinch. 

Farro + Sumac Summer Salad
1 cup dry Flourist Farro, cooked according to directions here
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted 
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 english cucumber, chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped 
1/2 cup parsley, minced 
1 bunch scallions, chopped (whites + greens)
1 cup pitted Kalamata olives 
100g cubed feta 
1/4 cup olive oil 
3 tbsp red wine vinegar 
1.5 tsp salt (more to taste)
2 tsp sumac 
Juice of half a lemon 

Cook the Farro according to stovetop directions here. When the farro is ready, drain and rinse well and set aside. Toast the pumpkin seeds over dry heat on the stovetop until lightly browning, or toast in the oven on a flat baking tray for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Set aside to cool completely. 

Prepare the bell pepper, cucumber, mint, parsley, and scallions and add to a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked and drained Farro, toasted seeds, feta, olives, vinegar, olive oil, salt, sumac, and lemon juice. Toss all the ingredients together well and taste for seasoning. 

Serve at cold or at room temperature. Serves 6-8 as a side or 3-4 as a light meal salad.

  • I didn’t have pumpkin seeds or cilantro on hand but even so this was amazing. I’m sure it would have been even better with them! I increased the sumac, I love it!

  • Yum! Had almost all of the ingredients in my pantry. Used za’atar instead of sumac and threw in some red cabbage. Delish!

  • This is so good! It’s going to be a regular summer salad. Travels well so is great for packed lunches. I skipped the feta because am dairy free. Used sun-dried tomatoes instead of peppers and a zatar mix instead of just sumac because it’s what I had.
