* Document type: menu
* Target audience: Diners
* Country and dialect (source): German (Bavaraia)
* Country and dialect (target): American English

frisée lettuce
Explanation:
This immediately sprang to mind, given that the terrine is on a vegetable carpaccio. Young, tender frisée leaves, or baby frisée leaves would be my bet - typo to be confirmed, of course, by your client if possible.

Baby Frisee Salad - baby frisee leaves mixed with toasted caramelized walnuts, tart diced cherries, cherry tomatoes and gorgonzola cheese topped with grilled chicken.
