Bitter Greens with Tarragon Vinaigrette and Pine Nuts

Look for loose bitter greens in bins in the produce section of your supermarket, or create your own mix with watercress, endive, arugula, and radicchio. Just about any nut will work nicely in this salad; try it with hazelnuts for a holiday touch.
