Simanim Salad For Rosh HaShana!

I found this recipe at Creative Jewish Mom. It is a colorful and interesting salad incorporating many of the significant symbolic foods (simanim) which are eaten on the Jewish Rosh Hashanah, which is a New Year's Celebration.
Salad:
A combination of bags of fancy lettuces and spinach (romaine, butter etc. and spinach)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds out of the shell (or pumkin, if you can find them)
4 red and/or golden apples, peeled and cut into small chunks
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup grated carrots
1 cup sliced beets, freshly roasted or boiled (I used canned instead.)
fresh pomegranate arils (seeds)

Dressing:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons minced leek- white part only
1/4-cup honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/2 cup of pomegranate juice

Top with fresh pomegranate arils (seeds)

Directions:
One or two days ahead: Combine all dressing ingredients; refrigerate. If you are using fresh beets, cook beets and refrigerate.

On serving day, gently toss spinach and lettuces together. Just before serving combine lettuce mixture with dressing, toss again. Then top with beets, apples, carrots, dates, pomegranate arils and sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
