3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Preheat the oven to 375F. Trim off the beet greens. Rinse the beets well and arrange them, unpeeled, in a single layer in a shallow baking dish, lightly oiled. Roast until the beets are tender, about an hour, depending on their size.

Transfer the roasted beets to a colander and rinse with cold water. Let stand until cooled slightly. With a small knife peel the beets and slice them.

Combine the beets and spinach in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients. Add the dressing to the spinach-beet mixture and toss well to coat. Transfer to salad plates and top with pine nuts.
