Instructions

To prepare the caper raisin vinaigrette:

Soak the raisins in the balsamic vinegar in a small bowl for about 30 minutes.

Using an immersion blender or small food processor, pulse together the capers, parsley, salt, and Zucchi garlic EVOO until coarse, but not too chunky.

Add soaked raisins and balsamic vinegar. Pulse for a few more seconds.

Set aside.

To assemble the salad:

Roast, cube, and peel the butternut squash, removing the seeds and the fleshy interior.

Cook the farro, following the instructions on the box or bag.

Thinly slice the kale, removing the stems.

In a large bowl, mix together the cooked farro, squash, and kale.

Top with toasted pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese. Drizzle with the caper raisin vinaigrette and toss to coat.

CHEF'S TIPS
