  • 3 Tbs. rice vinegar
  • 1½ Tbs. canola oil, or other neutral-flavored oil
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar, light
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1⁄8 tsp. ground allspice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 5 oz. mixed salad greens (10 cups lightly packed)
  • 1 large peach, pitted and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. almonds, sliced and toasted


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, brown sugar, ginger, and allspice. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
