How to Make It
Grind first 4 ingredients to a paste with a mortar and pestle. Whisk together garlic mixture, wine, vinegar, and oil. Let stand 2 to 3 hours to blend flavors.
Toss together salad greens and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss gently.
Note: To make salad dressing in a blender, process first 6 ingredients until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Turn blender on high; gradually add oil in a slow, steady stream until blended.
