What a delicious salad. The only changes I made was to the greens. I used arugula, curly leaf lettuce and romaine, (I'm not a big fan of bitter greens). It doesn't much matter though, it's the dressing thats fabulous! Use which ever greens you like. I will be maikng this a staple in my house.
Tricolor Bitter Greens Salad
If you're not a fan of bitter greens, use any combination of sweet lettuces, such as romaine, Bibb, and Boston. Julienne the greens with a chef's knife to give the salad a tidy look. This salad pairs well with ham and sweet potatoes.
