A delicious and simple summer salad made with fresh strawberries, rocket/arugula, red onion, and feta served with a balsamic dressing. 

Serves 4.  Use the scaling buttons below to double or triple the quantity.


  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 600g cooked farro or pearled spelt (200g uncooked)
  • 300g (or 11oz) strawberries - washed and sliced into 0.5cm / 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/2 red onion - finely chopped
  • 200g (or 70z) feta - crumbled
  • 80g (or 30oz) rocket
  • A handful of torn basil leaves


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp water (optional)


  1. Cook the farro according to packet instructions if you haven't already.
  2. Place a frying pan on a medium to high heat and toast the sunflower seeds for a few minutes until they start to turn brown then remove them from the pan and set them aside.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small jug or bowl. The dressing should be of a thick but pourable consistency. You may need to add a little water if your balsamic is particularly viscose. 
  4. Place the farro, strawberries, feta, red onion, basil and rocket/arugula in a salad bowl.
  5. Pour on the dressing and toss everything together.
  6. Serve on plates or in bowls topped with the toasted sunflower seeds
