Shamrock Salad

In Ireland, a 'shamrock' salad is made with a mixture of fresh greens, such
as dulse, watercress, sorrel, burnet, or whatever grows in the garden. This
salad is flavored with garlic, another favorite Irish food that has been
known and eaten in Ireland since ancient times.

1 garlic clove, peeled and minced or crushed
1 to 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
5 to 6 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
2 quarts mixed salad greens, washed, dried, torn into bite-size pieces, and chilled

In a salad bowl, combine the garlic, salt to taste, vinegar, and mustard.
Crush with a pestle or back of a spoon. Gradually add oil; season with
pepper. Blend with a whisk or fork. Add greens; toss to combine well. Serve
at once.
