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.

The only changes I made was to use jarred artichoke hearts, and bagged mixed salad leaves. If I were to make this again, I wouldn't bother with the potato - it was an odd addition that didn't really fit with the other ingredients. Thanks, Christine!

Delicious. Typical salad found in bars/cafés in Italy for a quick but filling lunch. I used Pecorino Romano shavings instead of Fontina. Make sure to add a squeeze of lemon to the water when cooking the fennel and artichoke and don't overcook any of the veggies, they need (including the potato) to be firm. This is a crunchy salad. Thank you for the recipe Christine L.
