I love making this salad when I have extra parsley around- Its so nice and light and packed with protein from the farro and chickpeas.  The vinaigrette is simple and gives it a great flavor to balance out the green and regular onion.

I’m a huge fan of farro salads, so transforming this into a bit of a non-traditional tabbouleh was perfect.  And its hearty enough that it can be the main dish, not just a side!

This Farro Tabbouleh Is:

  • Bright
  • Herby
  • Citrusy
  • Hearty
  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free
  • Easy to Make Ahead or Meal Prep

How Do I Make Tabbouleh with Farro Grain?

  1. Cook the farro: In a medium pot add the farro and water, and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes until faro has absorbed all the water. Turn off heat and let the farro sit for an additional 5 minutes.  Drain (if there is any water left) and let the farro chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before adding to salad.
  2. In a large bowl add the parsley, onion, green onion, tomatoes, cucumber and chickpeas.
  3. For the dressing- in a small mason jar combine the olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.  Cover the jar and shake well to combine.
  4. Once farro has cooled add it to the bowl with parsley mixture.  Shake dressing and pour over the farro, stir to combine.
  5. Serve immediately, or save in individual mason jar servings for later in the week.
