In my garden Tucson, AZ this may or may not be native. The garden is mostly greens, Mesclun mix and this is popping-up. Thanks.

Or Prickly Lettuce.

The photo is a bit fuzzy, but to me the plant looks too "soft" for either of those.

My first thought that it sure looks like Prickly Lettuce (Lactuca serriola) that we have here in Florida. More photos for comparison in this list of Arizona weeds: https://cals.arizona.edu/crops...

Or....
It could be part of the mesclun mix.
Look at frisée aka curly endive aka chicory.

Perhaps, or at least something in that family.

If it's prickly lettuce it should have spines on the underside of the midrib as in these pictures:

Thanks posters you've helped me narrow it down.

I tasted it (maybe should of done this sooner) and it was distinctly "mustard". I'm pretty sure now it's:

a wild mustard.
