  3. While all your above goodies are roasting, layer tomatoes, onion,  carrots, and feta cheese. Set aside.

  4. Now, time for your farro! Please cook according to package (similar to rice or quinoa).

  5. After your roasting foods come out of the oven, let cool, then layer gorgeously over your salad bed.

  6. Sprinkle farro over salad once cooked.

  7. ENJOY!
