1 small fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced crosswise
2 oz. aged Gouda, thinly shaved with a vegetable peeler
1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted

In a large bowl, combine the mache, red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and baby greens and orange segments, diced beets, and sliced fennel. Add 1/4 cup of the dressing, season with salt and pepper, and toss well. Taste the greens, and adjust seasoning with more salt, pepper, or dressing as needed (you may not need all of the dressing).

Divide the salad between four salad plates. Scatter the shaved Gouda and pine nuts, dried cherries, and chives evenly over all four salads.
