Misticanza Salad


6 cups mixed lettuce/chicories/greens of your choice (arugula, spinach, endive, radicchio, frisee, baby green and/or red leaf lettuce)

1 cup mixed herbs (parsley, chives, cilantro, mint, carrot tops, and/or celery leaves)

1/2 bulb fennel

1 large watermelon radish, peeled and quartered

Juice of 1/2 lemon

4 tablespoons highest quality extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Chop or tear the lettuce/chicories/greens into 1- to 2-inch pieces. Using a mandoline, slice the fennel bulb and radishes extremely thinly.
  2. In a large bowl, add all the lettuce/chicories/greens. Then add fennel, and radish slices. Coarsely chop the herbs, then add them to the bowl.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste, then squeeze the juice of a quarter lemon over the salad. Drizzle with the olive oil, toss, and serve immediately before the greens begin to wilt.
