Keto Winter Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

In cooler months, chicories are a seasonal, delicious base for excellent salads. The sturdier structure of these “bitter greens” means they can sit at the table longer without wilting, and their more assertive flavor means they stand up well to strong-flavored dressings. A blender dressing delivers just that: punchy layers of acid, salt, and Dijon mustard. (Don’t have a blender? Mash the garlic, then whisk the dressing together by hand in a small bowl.) Extra dressing can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for one week.
Serves 6
