Greens with Bubbly Champagne Vinaigrette

This salad is full of flavor and is very elegant. The homemade dressing has a bright taste with a little sparkle from the Champagne – a perfect touch for a New Year’s Eve celebration. You can prepare the dressing up to 8 hours ahead and refrigerate in a sealed container. You can also prepare the salad ingredients up through the point of adding the green onions and store, covered, in the refrigerator. Add the last few ingredients when ready to serve.
