Freekeh: Combine freekeh and broth in a medium pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, or until freekeh is tender. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Drain excess moisture from the pot, then fluff freekeh with a fork.
Dressing: Meanwhile, stir together all dressing ingredients.
Assemble: Toss together cooked freekeh and all remaining salad ingredients. Stir in dressing. Serve warm, room temperature, or cold.
*While I love the creamy element of this dressing, the salad is also delicious without it! You can omit the dressing entirely or just omit the yogurt, stirring the garlic, lemon juice, and salt into the salad.
