Réveillon Salad Recipe

Although any blend of salad mix will work for this recipe, hearty greens, such as radicchio, frisée, and escarole, serve best because they don't wilt easily when dressed and tossed with the vegetable cubes. The bitter flavor of these seasonal greens also balances the sweet ingredients.
