From: EatingWell

 by 1 person
1 tablespoon  red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon  lemon juice
1 teaspoon  Dijon mustard
2 cloves  garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup  extra-virgin olive oil

10 cups  mixed lettuces, (3 small heads), such as chicory, radicchio and leaf lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

1. To prepare vinaigrette: Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in oil. Stir in olives and parsley.
2. To prepare salad: Using a sharp knife, remove peel and white pith from oranges. Quarter the oranges; slice pieces crosswise.
3. Just before serving, combine lettuces, endive, fennel and the orange slices in a large bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to coat well.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate the vinaigrette (Step 1) for up to 2 days. Washed, dried lettuce will keep in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours. Keep prepared oranges and fennel in separate containers in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.

It looks very much like something I would enjoy even though I would have to adapt it for me.
