1/2 cup sherry vinegar
3 tablespoons diced red onion

3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cloves garlic -- minced

Preparation / Directions:

Place potatoes in a saucepan; add water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside. Steam mussels, covered, 10 minutes or until shells open; discard any unopened shells. Trim tough outer leaves from fennel. Dice stalks to equal 1 cup; set aside. Cut fennel bulb in half vertically; discard core. Cut each half crosswise into thin slices to measure 1/2 cup, and set aside. Reserve remaining fennel for another use. Combine vinegar and the next 6 ingredients (vinegar through garlic) in a large bowl, and stir well. Reserve 1/4 cup dressing; set aside. Add potatoes, mussels, fennel, and tomato wedges to bowl; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes. Combine reserved 1/4 cup dressing and greens in a bowl; toss well. Yield: 4 servings.
