Rinse sea scallops and pat dry with a towel. Toss scallops with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Heat a skillet over medium high heat until very hot. Pour in the oil and heat until it just begins to smoke. Carefully place each scallop in the pan with scallop's flat side down. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes per side flipping them once.

In a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper & garlic, slowly whisk in the olive oil in a stream. Combine the mixed greens and bell peppers in a large bowl. When the scallops are done, toss the dressing with the greens. Arrange the scallops on top of the salad. Serves 2
