Salad of Mixed Greens
From EatingWell: May/June 1994
Use the best greens available at your grocery store or farmers' market for this simple salad. A combination of baby lettuces, such as lamb's lettuce, oak leaf, spinach, watercress and arugula, would be particularly nice.

- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup snipped chives
