Bitter Sweet Winter Salad

These December days the chance of finding lettuce in the farmers market is slim to none. Its the season where I want a salad but have forgotten the amazing chopped salads that come with winter. I have been playing with fennel, chicories of all kinds as well as the Asian spicy greens again as the winter deepens.
