Wash the greens and pat dry or dry in a salad spinner. Tear any large leaves into bite-size pieces. Place in a bowl and add the pear and tangerine.
To make the dressing, combine the vinegar, apple juice concentrate, and salt in a jar. Just before serving, shake the dressing and pour it over the salad. Toss gently to mix. Divide the salad among individual serving plates and sprinkle with the pine nuts and pepper.
Salad of Spicy Greens with Fruit and Pine Nuts is best served immediately. If you need to make the salad in advance, store the greens and fruit separately in covered containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Toss with the dressing and garnish with the pine nuts and pepper just before serving.
