Original recipe from Platina:
Coditum Padodopum. A preparation of several greens is made with lettuce, bugloss, mint, catmint, fennel, parsley, sisymbrium, origan, chervil, cicerbita which doctors call teraxicon, plantain, morella, and several other fragarant greens, well washed and pressed and put in a large dish. Sprinkle them with a good deal of salt and blend with oil; it should be eaten and well chewed because wild greens are tough. This sort of salad needs a little more oil than vinegar. It is more suitable in winter than in summer, because it requires much digestion and is stronger in winter.
