I love basically everything about this salad.  Sweet roasted beets and carrots, nutty farro, and a simple yogurt balsamic dressing that is delish. Personally I love to eat this salad warm, although it is delicious cold as well. And if you don't like beets, you can use any other root vegetable you like.  However I highly recommend giving the beets a chance.  They are really amazing roasted and add a great earthiness and sweetness to the salad. I had never had one until about three years ago and now I am a total convert and a bit of a beet addict.  For easier prep, I recommend making the roasted veggies and farro ahead of time.  Then just toss it together with the dressing, spinach, and herbs to serve.

You said Spinach in the ingredients and said Kale in the instructions. I assume either would work?
