Either variety of kale — curly or Tuscan — works in this recipe.
Sauté shallots, garlic, and pepper flakes in oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat, 1 minute. Stir in kale and water; cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, vinegar, and salt. Stir in farro, pecorino, and zest.
For the vinaigrette, whisk together basil, oil, and lemon juice; season with salt and black pepper. Toss salad with vinaigrette to coat.
