Was at lunch with a colleague at Osteria Laguna today, and tried an ancient Roman salad (ancient by it's original provenance, that is..,) Puntarelle. I liked the recipe on epicurious and About. Pretty simple stuff, but very tasty with lots of personality. Try it. I don't think hubby will touch it, though, given the prominent role of anchovies. I'm tracking calories these day, so if anyone can find a calculator for unusual dishes like this, do tell. I've found calorie-count.com does the tricks on most dishes.
