Hi. I live in France too! I have eaten a salad with pear, goats cheese and toasted pine nuts. The salad vegetable used is seasonal and popular. It is a bulb shape, and is definitely not fennel. Do you have any idea what it is? It is also green. Thanks.

Hi Martha,

I am jealous of you living in the South. Aix en Provence must be lovely.

Is it possible that the vegetable you are thinking of is Belgian endive? Let me know if we need to search further. Here's a tasty endive salad recipe that you might like to try.

Kind Regards,

Belgian endive is it! Your description about the vegetable has only Belgian endive fitting it. Do post a pic of it if possible.
