Tear the salad greens into bite-size pieces. Halve the squash lengthways and slice them 5 mm thick; cut the carrots into 3-cm×5-mm sticks; and halve the tomatoes. Combine all the vegetables in a large salad bowl.
To prepare the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a screwtop jar, put the lid on and shake the jar well. The dressing will keep, refrigerated, for a week.
To serve, shake the dressing well, pour over the salad and toss lightly to coat.
