Members of the chicory family, radicchio and frisée are noted for their pleasantly bitter taste. Radicchio, a variety of chicory native to Italy, is characterized by its variegated purplish red leaves, which hold up particularly well in salads. Frisée, a longtime favorite with French cooks, is a slightly immature curly endive, with smaller heads and more delicate, tender leaves.

Directions:In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, mustard and orange zest. Add the 3 Tbs. olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until blended, then whisk in the mixed herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Set the dressing aside.
Preheat an indoor electric grill on medium-high heat. Brush the salmon on both sides with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the salmon on the grill and cook, turning once, until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, toss together the winter greens, chives, tarragon, fennel and beets with two-thirds of the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the salad among 4 plates. Top each salad with 2 strips of the salmon and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
