Earthbound Farm’s executive chef, Sarah LaCasse, invented this recipe to showcase our baby kale, and it quickly became a favorite at our Carmel Valley farm stand. The combination of farro and kale makes this salad a nutritional powerhouse. Baby kale offers the same nutrition as mature kale but is sweeter and more tender. If you can’t find it, substitute baby spinach.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add farro and cook al dente, about 20 minutes. Drain, refresh in cold water, and drain again.
- While farro is cooking, make vinaigrette by combining orange juice and zest, cumin, vinegar, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Slowly add olive oil, whisking constantly to incorporate.
- Place cooked farro, kale, currants or raisins, and pine nuts in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Pour about one-third of the dressing on salad and stir well. Taste to see if you want to add more dressing, and then season with additional salt and pepper.
