Farro salad
  1. Combine water and farro in a medium saucepan. Add 2 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the farro is tender, about 30 minutes. Drain well, and then transfer to a large bowl to cool.
  2. Add the halved NatureSweet® Cherubs® tomatoes, onion, herbs, pomegranate seeds, pistachios, and roasted red peppers to the farro, and toss to combine.
Vinaigrette
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Add the vinaigrette to the salad, and toss to coat.
  2. Fold in the crumbled feta cheese, being careful not to overmix the salad.
  3. Salad can be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.
