- 1 tablespoon freshly grated gingerroot
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 6 cups mixed greens
- 2 tomatoes diced
- 1 cup peeled and diced cucumber
- 1 cup sliced red onion
- 1/8 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

Whisk all the vinaigrette ingredients together in a small bowl. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
