In a very large saute or wok, combine onion and oil. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often. While it is cooking, peel and crush the garlic and add it to the pan. When fragrant (3 to 5 mins) add the escarole, increase heat to high and stir fry to wilt (1 to 2 mins). Add spinach and cress and cook very briefly (1 min). Clear a space in the center of the pan and add the beans. Spread them a bit to warm them. While they are warming add the bottled Tarragon flavored honey mustard lemon dressing. (Original recipe suggests a small amount of sweetened vinegar: vinegar to a measure of sugar, stir with a small rubber spatula and add this to the beans; mix.) Optional: If needed cover the pan and cook for a minute or two until beans are heated through and the flavors are blended. Serve hot. **PER SERVING: the dish, 139 cals, 2.3 g fat (15% of cals); the menu, 270 cals, 6.3 g fat (20%).
