1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small shallot, diced
1 cup farro, rinsed
2 sprigs oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Juice of 1 large lemon
Juice of 1 orange
1 small bunch Tuscan kale, stemmed and finely shredded
1/2 cup dried cherries or 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted and halved
1/2 English cucumber, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
4 ounces goat cheese
Put the walnuts in a small, heavy-bottomed skillet over low heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted and fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely on a small baking sheet.
Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the shallot and cook, stirring often with a wooden spoon, until the shallots have softened and are fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the farro and toast in the olive oil, stirring often, for about 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in 2 cups water, the oregano and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the farro is cooked through and tender, about 25 minutes. Remove the oregano sprigs, drain the farro, and set aside.
Whisk together the lemon juice, orange juice, remaining 1/3 cup olive oil and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the warm farro and toss to coat. Add the kale, cherries, cucumber and walnuts and toss to combine. Crumble in the goat cheese, toss gently just to mix and serve.
