Chefs, this one-of-a-kind salad has it all. For extraordinary flavor, you’ll roast sweet potatoes with sumac, a red, lemony spice common in Middle Eastern cooking. Then you’ll toss them with warm, earthy farro and Lacinato kale for hearty, chewy texture. You’ll top it all off with ricotta salata (or firm, aged ricotta), fresh mint, hazelnuts and the pleasant zing of homemade pickled onion. The result is an equally gorgeous and delicious winter dinner.
