Makes one salad

  • 1/2 cup farro (if you’re gluten-free, use brown rice or quinoa instead)
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (or 1 avocado, sliced)
  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  1. Cook the farro ahead of time, according to package directions, and let cool.
  2. Rinse and dry kale, remove leaves from stems and tear into bite-sized pieces. Add to a large bowl with olive oil and gently massage oil into kale for a few minutes until kale turns a nice dark green and becomes more tender.
  3. Slice the pomegranate in half and remove seeds (see video above).
  4. Add 1 cup of cooked farro, pomegranate seeds, feta cheese (or avocado) to kale.
  5. Make dressing: whisk together walnut oil, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard until creamy.
  6. Drizzle dressing over salad, toss to coat, and serve!
