A chicory salad is a gorgeous mixture of colors—deep reds, pinks, and pale green-yellows. Here its agreeable bittersweet flavor is mellowed by a lemony vinaigrette, spiked with a good touch of anchovy.

This salad would make a great first course for another meal with the addition of Soft-Center Hard-Cooked Eggs, garlic toast, and Parmigiano shavings. The dressing works well with romaine-type lettuces too, and with boiled leeks and potatoes.
