Author Notes: I had lunch last winter at the lovely "Riva" restaurant in Barnes, a leafy suburb of Central London. The salad was a vegetable I had never heard of called "puntarelle," a cousin to chicory. The dressing, however, was equally unexpected and exotic, and I could identify only anchovy and mint. I felt that garlic and lemon juice were must-have additions. You don't need "puntarelle" to enjoy this dressing; it's heaven on any salad, or to dip artichoke leaves in.KristenF
