Spinach Salad Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs) (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 6

3 lbs. fresh spinach, cleaned, deveined, and dried
1 lb. asparagus, cleaned, trimmed, and dried
3 lb. beets, trimmed

Pomegranate Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup pomegranate concentrate
1/4 cup Champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup good olive oil
1 shallot, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced

Place beets in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes.

Roast asparagi on oiled baking pan for 7 minutes at 450°F. Cool quickly in ice water and set aside to dry.

When beets are done, place pot under cold running water. One at a time peel beets under running water, the skins should slip off quite easily, and set aside to cool and dry.

In a medium bowl, whisk together pomegranate concentrate, vinegar, and honey. While whisking, drizzle in oil until emulsified. Using a mortar and pestle, work together shallots and garlic until paste-like in texture and then whisk into vinaigrette.

Julienne the beets and thickly slice the asparagi to about 3/4".

Place spinach leaves in large bowl, toss in asparagus, then beets, then vinaigrette, and serve.
