In a large skillet, combine oil, herbs, and pancetta. Place over medium heat, and cook until pancetta is transparent, 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk eggs in a small bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Add eggs to the skillet and cook, stirring, with a heatproof rubber spatula, until scrambled. Be sure not to let them become too dry. If you see that they are becoming too dry, remove them from the heat and continue stirring.
Place greens in a large bowl. Drizzle with the dressing and toss to combine. Add the scrambled eggs; toss to combine. Serve immediately.
