Roman-Inspired Mixed-Green Salad (Misticanza alla Romana)

Want a truly great mixed green salad full of vibrant lettuces, flavorful herbs, and bitter greens? You’re not going to find it in the pre-mixed salad section of your supermarket. Instead, make your own with the freshest whole heads of lettuce, radicchio, herbs, dandelion, and more. This incredibly simple recipe is inspired by the Roman salad called misticanza, which traditionally combines several wild greens. It’s unlikely most of us outside of Rome can find those greens, but we can capture the same spirit by combining a good mix of tender, bitter, and herbaceous greens.
