Name this vegetable?

I didn't know where to post this, so I apologize if it is in the wrong spot. I was served a vegetable yesterday and I have no idea what it was. It looked similar to the long stems of broccolini, dark green, but thinner and without any leaves or buds of any kind. It looked like a green branch with the texture of broccolini stems. It tasted brined in some way and was slightly salty and tasted closest to a cross between broccoli and scallions, but it was possible the brine was seasoned. I asked what they were and was told "hearts of palm" which I know they are not, since those are usually white and thicker, but anything's possible, I guess. Does anyone know what these are?

Thank you!
