This is a pretty salad recipe full of good-for-you-things like cherry tomatoes, chickpeas, farro, brown sugar and feta cheese.
And if you’re sitting there thinking that ALL of my salad recipes involve cherry tomatoes, guess what?
You’re right! I love these little balls of joy. Especially right now when all the pretty colored heirlooms are out. The orange are my favorite! They taste like candy…sorta.
There’s also a plethora of feta cheese in this salad, which makes it an instant winner, as well as a brown sugar vinaigrette. Yep, that’s right: a brown.sugar.vinaigrette.
Whoever said sugar highs were a bad thing?
You don’t want to miss this so head to PBS Food for the recipe!

I love the pops of colour Jenna! I used to hate tomatos – mainly because I couldn’t do the whole crisp-yet-mushy texture thing, but I do love cherry tomatos now!! There’s one type, I think it’s called Candi-To or something, and they’re super sweet. So good! Heading over to the recipe now!

So pretty, Jenna! I love those glass bowls, too. They remind me of a few that my grandma had. I wish I had hers (or yours!) 🙂

I love the cherry tomatoes and chickpeas, but I’m not a fan of feta. It’s very weird of me, I know. I’ve never heard of farro and based on your description over at PBS, I sort of want to try it. It sounds interesting!
Hilliary@HappilyEverHealthySeptember 23, 2011 at 5:50 am
Yum this sounds delicious! Cherry tomatoes are my favorite!
Gina @ Running to the KitchenSeptember 23, 2011 at 6:14 am
My cherry tomato + feta cheese obsessed husband would love this!
Bev WeidnerSeptember 23, 2011 at 6:51 am

This is too pretty for words.

Looks so good. Recently, I’ve become obsessed with cherry tomatoes and anything they are in …. therefore, I HAVE to make this tonight 🙂
Sarah LynnSeptember 23, 2011 at 10:25 am
Mmm, I’ve also become obsessed with cherry tomatoes! This looks so good!

There is nothing wrong with an everlasting combo of cheese and tomato. The perfect pair.

Mmm I love those little cherry tomatoes! So cute.. And I totally said that same nature’s candy thing today about carrots.. but we both know that’s not true at all. 😉
MellieSeptember 23, 2011 at 4:09 pm
Oh, YUM! This looks awesome!
LizSeptember 23, 2011 at 6:46 pm
I adore farro. I’m intrigued by the brown sugar vinaigrette…

I love the color of the tomatoes – they add pi-zazz 🙂

I totally agree – the feta completely makes this dish. Especially that it got all melty and warm from the farro. Mmmm.
KristaSeptember 26, 2011 at 9:08 am
That looks awesome– I love chickpeas!! I miss having fresh tomatoes. My dad grows them in his garden, but I wasn’t home this summer 🙁
Amanda @ AmandaRunsNYSeptember 26, 2011 at 12:42 pm
I’m getting really sad because the fresh tomatoes aren’t going to be around for much longer! I can eat cherry tomatoes like candy too.
Lauren @ Oatmeal after SpinningSeptember 27, 2011 at 6:39 am
I just bought farro for the first time, and haven’t cooked with it yet! Thanks for posting this recipe!
I’m a total grain junkie- can you compare it to any other grain? It is like barley? Or freekeh? Or rice? 🙂
jennaSeptember 27, 2011 at 6:50 am
wheat berries! very similar texture but no required soaking time 🙂
