Method

Set aside the cooked Farro (cook per package instructions; I use Bobs Red Mill Farro).

In a food processor or blender, blend together 1/2 cup artichokes, 5 sun dried tomatoes, 1/2 lemon juiced and zested, and salt and pepper. The mixture will be thick and paste like. Set aside. Season to taste.

In a bowl, combine the Farro, the paste you just made, and the rest of the ingredients and toss. Serve immediately or cover and chill until ready to serve.
