Directions

  1. Cook the artichoke hearts, fennel, and carrots in salted boiling water until tender but firm, about 8 minutes. Drain. When cool, cut the artichoke hearts and fennel into thin wedges. Cut the carrots on the diagonal into thin slices. Boil the potato in water to cover until tender but firm. Drain, and when cool enough to handle, peel and cut into medium dice.
  2. Cut the romaine into thin strips crosswise. Cut the endive into thin strips lengthwise. Core the tomato, and cut into medium dice.
  3. Trim the rind from the fontina, and cut cheese into small matchsticks.
  4. Mound the lettuces in a shallow bowl, and sprinkle with the tomato. Arrange the vegetables over the top. Sprinkle with the fontina.
  5. In a small bowl combine the olive oil, vinegar, and mustard. Salt and pepper to taste. Beat lightly with a fork. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, and toss.

Delicious!! The only thing I changed was, my family enjoys raw fennel and raw carrots, so I did not boil them before adding. I also only had marinated artichoke hearts which I rinsed & tossed in. (Next time I will use frozen) This salad was fresh and crunchy! The diced potato (I used Yukon Gold), and cut up fontina cheese provided surprises of flavor & texture! My VERY picky daughter just loved it, too!

Classic, can't go wrong. Don't forget to add a slice of lemon while cooking the artichoke and fennel. Thanks Christine L. for the recipe.
