Misticanza at Lupa



1 cup arugula

½ cup spinach

½ cup radicchio trevisano or mixed chicories

1 cup mixed greens of your choice (we used sorrel and chard leaves)

½ cup mixed herbs (we used as parsley, chives, basil, mint, carrot tops, tarragon and celery leaves)

¼ bulb fennel

2 radishes

Juice of ¼ lemon

2 tablespoons highest quality extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste



Chop the radicchio trevisano into 1- to 2-inch pieces. Using a mandoline, slice the fennel bulb and radishes extremely thinly.


In a large bowl, add radicchio and all other greens, gently tearing larger leaves into bite-sized pieces. Then add fennel, and radish slices. Coarsely chop any strong-tasting herbs such as chives and carrot tops, then add them to the bowl.


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.
