Top Review by COOKGIRl

This was a perfect accompaniment to soup today and was easy to make. I used fresh mint from our herb garden and in place of fresh toms (which are SUPER lousy this time of year) I substituted sun dried tomatoes. Nice change from lemon vinaigrette. Tried a mixture of baby spinach, gem lettuce and baby arugula. Reviewed for Best of 2011.
