If Popeye were just starting out, he'd have something new to bring to a spinach-skeptical world. Spinach salads have probably won more converts in recent times than any single class of traditional spinach dishes. Because they accommodate a variety of ingredients--meats, vegetables, all types of cheese and nuts--spinach salads please many palates. This version with sweet slices of Fuyu persimmons, dried cranberries, and a whisper of curry, offers both the exotic and the familiar.
6 cups young spinach leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
2 Fuyu persimmons, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1 cup dried cranberries, soaked in 1 cup hot water for 1 hour
For Dressing:
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons reserved cranberry soaking liquid (above)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
In a large bowl, combine spinach, scallions, and persimmon wedges. Drain cranberries, reserving 2 tablespoons soaking liquid, and add to spinach mixture.

In a small bowl, whisk curry powder, reserved cranberry soaking liquid, lemon juice, vinegar, and olive oil together. Add salt and pepper. Toss spinach mixture and garnish with with coconut.
