Mache is worth a try, but nearly any other small leaf lettuce will carry this fresh medley of flavor just fine.

Ingredients

  • Vinaigrette1 small shallot, minced
  • 1- 1/2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 3- 1/2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs water
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh mint, finely chopped (about 1 teaspoon)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Salad1/4 lb pancetta (about 1/2-inch thick slice), diced
  • 6 cups mache greens (3.5 oz), rinsed and thoroughly dried
  • 1/2 lb Bing or Ranier cherries (about 2 cups), rinsed, pitted and quartered
  • 1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced or shaved
  • 4 oz fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup hazelnuts or almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped (optional)

Directions

  • For the vinaigrette, mix the shallot and vinegar in a small bowl. Whisk in the oil, then the water. Add the mint; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • For the salad, sauté the pancetta in a medium skillet over medium-low heat, stirring on occasion, until crisp, 5-8 minutes. Combine the mache, cherries, fennel, and warm pancetta in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing. Divide between plates and scatter each salad with goat cheese and nuts, if using.

Substitution Tip: Mache is a mild field green also known as corn salad, rapunzel, field salad, or lamb’s lettuce. You can substitute any small leaf lettuce in place of mache.
