"The almond and mint marinade/ dressing gives this fresh appetizer a Middle Eastern touch. This can also double as a light lunch."

1 cup mint leaves
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons almonds - chopped
8 cups mixed greens
5 ounces Brie - cut in eighths
