Citrus Dressing: In bowl, stir together orange juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, garlic and hot pepper sauce; whisk in oil. (Dressing can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.) In large salad bowl, arrange Bibb lettuce, endive and radicchio. Cut red pepper into thin strips and onion into thin rings; add to bowl.
