Paris - unusual salad green at Marche Maubert?

EllenGST | Aug 6, 2013 04:03 PM

we're home from Paris for a week, and I've not been able to identify something I purchased at Marche Maubert for a salad. The greens (and darker leaves) were gorgeous the morning after a thunderstorm and rain, and there was one green I'd never seen before (I meant to take a photo of the salad I made, but of course, I forgot!) This particular green was very finely cut - sort of resembled dill fronds but closer. The flavor was slightly salty. It's not frisee/chicory or arugula - I know those. I doubt it was fennel - there was absolutely no anise flavor. The vendor just said it was "salade." Does anyone have any idea what this might have been?

We enjoy interesting salads and also garden, so I'd love to identify this and grow it.
thanks in advance,
