Kale and Farro Salad with Feta

Recipe photo courtesy of Ryan Liebe

Purple kale or curly kale can be substituted for the Tuscan variety (also called lacinato); chop the sturdy leaves instead of tearing them. Spelt is a good alternative to farro, with a similar taste and texture. We prefer French feta, which is typically milder and creamier, to other varieties.

    Lovely salad but baffled why " French" feta is specified when feta is Greek by definition. In the EU it has PDO status, meaning it must be made in the traditional way in certain areas of Greece using wholly sheep or a combination of sheep and goat's milk. If it isn't it's not feta, but a "feta- style" cheese: why use that when the real thing is readily available and inexpensive.
