My hometown of Austin, Tex. is home to an amazing grocery store called Central Market. There's scarce an ingredient Central Market doesn't sell. In addition to their stellar made-in-house baked goods, deli meats, and things like hummus, they have recipe cards all around the store to pluck, shop from, and take home with you. This recipe is from one of those cards.

Spinach is served on Rosh Hashanah to represent the wish to get rid of enemies, according to Sephardic tradition. This recipe is also the definition of a refreshing summer salad. When my mom and I made it this summer we threw in the delicious blood oranges we had on hand. The original recipe calls for ricotta salata cheese, which we omitted it to keep it light and let the citrus flavors really sparkle.
