Ingredients:

1 8.8 oz bag of Italian farro

Quarter of a red bell pepper

Cook the farro according to package instructions (usually 10-12 min depending on the desired texture). Chop the onions into very small pieces, roughly chop the capers and the olives. Chop the tomatoes into quarters length wise. Chop the snow peas into halves. Roughly chop the parsley. Chop the cucumber and bell peppers into small equal size pieces.


Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Add the cooked and cooled farro. On the side, whisk together lemon, oil, honey and seasonings until it turns into a vinegraitte.


Add the farro to the vegetables and toss together. Add the vinegraitte to the salad and toss it all together. Top with crumbled fetta cheese and enjoy it as a side with grilled shrimps or just by itself.
