Crudités Salad with Farro and Pecans

Crudités Salad with Farro and Pecans

A texture riot of a salad; it gets crunch and creaminess from toasted pecans and almond butter(!).

Ingredients

Vinaigrette

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Salad

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 teaspoons almond butter or natural peanut butter
  • ½ bunch Tuscan kale, ribs and stems removed, leaves torn (about 2 cups)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ small fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise on a mandoline
  • 2 breakfast radishes, thinly sliced lengthwise on a mandoline
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets, grated on the large holes of a box grater
  • 1 cup red and/or yellow grape tomatoes, halved
  • ¾ cup cooked semi-pearled farro

Recipe Preparation

Vinaigrette

  • Whisk oil, lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl to combine; set aside.

Salad

  • Cook pecans and oil in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until nuts are darkened in color, 5–7 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop so you have a variety of sizes, with some pieces almost pulverized. Set aside 2 Tbsp. nuts for serving.

  • Whisk almond butter and 1 Tbsp. vinaigrette in a medium bowl to combine. Add kale and massage dressing into leaves with your hands until evenly coated; season with salt and pepper.

  • Toss fennel, zucchini, radishes, cauliflower, tomatoes, watercress, farro, and remaining pecans in a large bowl with remaining vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper. Add kale and toss to combine. Drizzle with oil and serve topped with reserved pecans.
