Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Set a large colander inside a large bowl of ice water.
Cook the spinach in the boiling water, stirring, just until bright green, about 10 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, immediately transfer the spinach to the colander and stir a few times to quickly cool it. Drain well and squeeze out excess water (see Two Easy Ways to Squeeze Spinach). Using your fingers, loosen the spinach slightly as you transfer it to a medium bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients and gently mix until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavors meld. Return to cool room temperature before serving. (The spinach is best served on the day it’s made.)
