Dig into a seemingly bottomless bowlful laden with lip-smacking elements, from tender roasted beets sprinkled with sumac and garlic to bite-size cubes of tangy-creamy feta cheese to crunchy sliced almonds. The baby greens are spilling over with a spectacular vinaigrette, led by the sour tang of pomegranate molasses that gives everything (including you) extra oomph!

Roast the beets
Cut each beet into 6 wedges. On a lined sheet pan, toss the beets with 1 tbsp vinaigrette (double for 4 portions); season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, 20 to 22 minutes, until lightly browned.

Cook the quinoa
While the beets roast, using a strainer, rinse the quinoa. In a medium pot, combine the rinsed quinoa, 1 cup water (double for 4 portions) and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 16 to 18 minutes, until the quinoa is tender. Fluff the cooked quinoa with a fork; season with the remaining spice blend and pepper.

Make the salad
While the quinoa cooks, roughly chop the lettuce, discarding the root end. To the bowl of vinaigrette, add the lettuce, baby greens and ½ the feta. Toss well.
