Sun-Dried Tomato, Feta, & Farro Salad - Easy

My air-conditioner pooped out a couple weeks ago.  Of course that was the week of temps in the 90s and humidity of approximately 150%.  So until the service person was able to attend to (luckily) only a minor repair, I had to fall back on meals that didn't require much cooking.  Luckily I saved a copy of this salad from Mele Cotte, one of my favorite bloggers.  The original salad used barley, but I had about a cup of farro remaining in the pantry, practically begging me to use it.  Since it was too hot to argue, I acquieced.

The only heat was getting the broth to boil, and I did that in the microwave to avoid melting the kitchen any more than necessary.

The black olives are missing from the photos because I couldn't find that can of olives hiding in the back of the pantry.  Until after lunch.  Of course.
