  • Summary

    Toss together feathery, pale-green frisée, along with tender, purple-red slices of radicchio, thin semicircles of crisp fennel, and a light mustard vinaigrette to make a gorgeous interplay of colors, textures, and flavors. A generous handful of mint leaves adds a tongue-tingling surprise, reinforcing this salad's zesty freshness. Editor's Note: This recipe is part of Gourmet's Modern Menu for Easter. Menu also includes Arugula-Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Roasted Spring Vegetables; and Lemon Pudding with Strawberries and Meringue Cigars.
