Mixed Green Salad with Fresh Herbs

I am always looking for fresh salad recipes and this one caught my eye. The salad came from a cookbook that I had called Perfect Recipes for Having People Over. The flavors of fresh greens were refreshing and appealed to me. The lemony flavored dressing really enhances the herb and salad greens. I used romaine lettuce and baby spinach with different herbs I had on hand. I served this today at brunch and the salad was a hit.
