Hello — Staying at our Ani’s house last week, we pretty much went through a big bag of sugar snap peas from Costco. So crispy and sweet. And I’ve had them in mind ever since. So I picked up some up at Sprouts for this salad– bright lettuces, sweet sugar snap peas, salty feta all on a base of hearty faro. Simple but satisfying.
SUGAR SNAP PEA & FARRO SALAD
1/2 cup farro
pinch of salt
3 to 4 cups baby lettuces*
1/3 pound sugar snap peas (about 1 cup)
2 tab. feta
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tab. cider vinegar
1 tsp. honey
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
Cook the faro according to the directions on the package. Mine simmered 20 minutes with a cup of water and a pinch of salt. When it’s tender, rinse it under cold water to cool it down.
Layer the lettuce, faro, peas and feta on a plate.
In a container with a tight fitting lid shake together the olive oil, vinegar, honey and salt & pepper until it’s completely blended. Pour it over the salad just before you set it on the table. Fresh and bright!

I am always looking for new ways to use farro, it’s my favorite grain, love this salad Rhonda. It screams Spring with those gorgeous sugar snaps and looks so tasty and healthful.
Thanks Suzanne– I saw a faro salad with grilled chicken and strawberries on the cover of the Cooking Light magazine that just came. –think that sounds worth trying! hugs from here, friend…
Hi Rhonda – this would be a huge hit in this household. I can see adding some chopped cooked chicken or shrimp too -Kat
Great idea Kat!
