Combine the water and farro in a medium saucepan. Add 2 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the farro is tender, about 30 minutes. Drain well, and then transfer to a large bowl to cool.
Add the tomatoes, onion, chives, and parsley to the farro, and toss to combine.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Add the vinaigrette to the salad and toss to coat.
The salad can be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Garlic cloves with wonderful taste contain a number of important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients that have proven health benefits.
Laboratory studies have shown that allicin reduces the production of cholesterol by inhibiting the reductive enzyme HMG-CoA in liver cells.
Allicin also reduces the stiffness of blood vessels by releasing nitric oxide (NO), which lowers blood pressure. It also prevents the formation of blood clots, and has a fibrinolytic effect in blood vessels, which helps reduce the risk of diseases of the coronary arteries and peripheral blood vessels and stroke.
Scientific research has also found that consuming garlic reduces the risk of stomach cancer.
