Orange and Pomegranate Salad
For your Rosh Hashanah table.

Pomegranates are associated with Rosh Hashanah because the pomegranate is said to have 613 seeds, corresponding to the 613 mitzvot. The pomegranate has also long been a symbol of fertility, and thus of the unlimited possibilities for the new year.
Whisk together the cider vinegar, shallots, mustard, honey, and olive oil; set aside. Peel the oranges, removing as much of the white pith as possible and cut into sections. In a large bowl, toss together the oranges, pomegranate seeds, and salad greens. Drizzle with dressing and season with salt and pepper to taste; toss gently to coat greens with dressing.
