Field Salad with Warm Soy Dressing

Yield 8 servings (serving size: about 2 cups)
Tips: Any combination of salad greens will work, but we used prepackaged greens labeled "spring mix." Toast pine nuts on a baking sheet at 350º for 5 minutes. They burn quickly, so watch them. Look for mirin in the Asian section of your grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 2 (5-ounce) bags gourmet salad greens (about 16 cups)
  • 1 cup red bell pepper strips
  • 1 cup diagonally sliced snow peas
  • 1/3 cup diagonally sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
