Spring greens - Creating your own dressing

I received my first CSA box today and I was a little bit disappointed. With the cold spring we've had, I shouldn't have been surprised to see so many greens. I received salad mix, spinach, kale, bok choy, radishes and turnips.

With those ingredients, there were a lot of salads in my future. More than I was sure I could eat. But it did inspire me to try a new salad recipe: Spinach and Radish Salad with Sesame. I used my salad mix because I knew it would wilt the fastest. The light salad mix was the perfect backdrop for the dressing which was a mix of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil.

I actually didn't have any rice wine vinegar so I used white wine vinegar instead. When you're making dressing at home, you can do the same type of substitution. Any vinaigrette is made up of basically three types of ingredients.
