Leeks are a siman for the decimation of our enemies. The Hebrew word for leek—karsi is similar to the word yikorsu, “[may our enemies be] decimated.” Spinach, swiss chard, and beets are also meaningful as their Arabic or Hebrew translations are reminiscent of the Hebrew word yistalku, “[may our adversaries be] removed.” And if you think you see a lot of emphasis on escaping from hostile threats, just think about Jewish history for a minute.

Packed with iron and protein, this salad offers serious nutrition. Brighten it up with chopped fresh fruit or a handful of craisins. You can easily make a balsamic dressing, and it’s a terrific pairing for any fresh spinach salad. When it’s not Pesach, you can add kick to the dressing by adding 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard.

I am especially proud of this creation because I love to incorporate the simanim throughout my menu. This gorgeous, healthful and refreshing recipe satisfies so tastefully— I wouldn’t wait for the holidays to make it!. This recipe calls for cooked beets. You can use boiled, canned or roasted (my favorite!)
