Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


4 servings

Bottled dressing adds to the easy preparation for this warm, wonderful salad. Gertrudis Miller in Evansville, Indiana got the recipe from a friend years ago. “It couldn’t be much quicker to make,“ she shares, “and it always brings compliments when I serve it.“


  • 1 pound sea scallops
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 6 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, saute scallops in oil for 2 minutes on each side or until firm and opaque. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, saute red pepper and garlic for 2-3 minutes. Add salad dressing and water; cook 2-3 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Return scallops to the pan; cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Place the greens in a salad bowl. Add scallop mixture and toss lightly; sprinkle with pepper.
