Tricolor Salad

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
Here's a great make-ahead trick for this simple, colorful salad: A couple of hours before dinner, pour the prepared dressing into the bottom of the serving bowl, and assemble the salad greens on top. When you bring the salad to the table, all you need to do is toss--and you won't have soggy greens.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups torn Belgian endive (about 2 heads)
  • 2 cups torn radicchio (about 1/2 head)
  • 1 (5-ounce) package fresh baby arugula (about 8 cups loosely packed)
