Method: 

Toss lettuce, arugula and radishes together in a large salad bowl and set aside. Whisk together walnut oil, vinegar, shallots, honey, and salt and pepper to make a dressing and set aside.

Season scallops all over with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add scallops, arranging them in a single layer, and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes per side, until cooked through, seasoning again with more salt, pepper and granulated garlic while they're cooking, if you like.

Toss greens with dressing and transfer to individual plates. Top with scallops and serve immediately.
