1. Wash all of the baby greens to remove grit and use a salad spinner to dry thoroughly.
2. If you have a mandolin, it is best used for cutting the vegetables into thin strips. If not, you can use a knife to cut sticks of the carrot, zucchini and squash.
3. To make the dressing, place all ingredients in a high power blender such as a Vita Mix and blend until smooth.
4. Toss all the ingredients together with 6 oz. of dressing to coat all the greens.
