Chef’s Tips:

This salad looks nice if it is garnished with a balsamic vinegar glaze.

If you don’t have all of the fresh herbs, feel free to just use parsley.

You can also use a mix of other delicate lettuces instead of the romaine and mesclun. See what’s in season near you.

Toss the salad gently.
