French Herb Salad or Salade aux Fines Herbes

French Women don’t get fat!  They say it’s their Mediterranean diet, rich in fruit, vegetables, leafy greens, herbs, legumes and grains. This herb salad is a regular.  Filled with the fines herbs, such as parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil (not easily found).  We substituted dill and carrot greens which are all part of the same family as chervil, easily found. The citrus dressing is the perfect complement to the nutty French Arugula and herbs.
