1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 to 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 green onions, thinly sliced

3 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and chopped*

1 tablespoon capers


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add the greens and green onions and toss to coat well. Top with eggs and capers.
